Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum skip-the-line tickets
The Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza is an important cultural center in the Paseo del Prado in Madrid. The artworks that this Museum houses were once the property of Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza and were previously held in a museum in Lugano, Switzerland. After the Baron’s marriage with a Spanish woman, he wanted to give his precious collection to the Spanish government, and it was decided that the collection should reside in Madrid.
The Museum offers visitors an overview of art from the 13th century to the late 20th century. In the nearly one thousand works on display, visitors can contemplate the major periods and pictorial schools of western art such as the Renaissance, Mannerism, the Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism and the art of the 19th and 20th centuries up to Pop Art. The museum also features works from some movements not represented in state-owned collections, such as Impressionism, Fauvism, German Expressionism and the experimental avant-garde movements of the early 20th century. In addition, it boasts an important collection of 19th-century American painting not found in any other European museum institutions.
