Paseo del Prado/Paseo de Recoletos

Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

8 Paseo Del Prado
Madrid, 28014, Spain
TEL: 34-91-369-0151

Regarded by critics as the missing link between other Spanish art collections, the Thyssen’s pieces, purchased by the Spanish state from a private collector in 1992, represent a tremendous breadth of European painters from the 14th to 21st centuries.  Temporary exhibitions are frequently conducted in conjunction with the Fundación Caja Madrid  (Plaza San Martín, 1; 011-34-91-379-20-50; www.fundacioncajamadrid.es), opposite the Monasterio de las Descalzas Reales, where all exhibitions are free.

Insider Tip:

The audio guide giving an overview of 20th-century art is worth its 4-euro (about $5) price tag.
