Cose utili da sapere

It's part of the ‘Golden Triangle of Art' that includes the Prado Museum and the Reina Sofía Museum, all of which are within walking distance of the other.
If you're turned off by the crowds at Prado then this museum will sooth your ragged nerves. Wait times are usually less than 30 minutes.
It houses the biggest private art collection in Spain, donated by the family of a rich baron by the name of (you guessed it) Thyssen-Bornemisza.
The permanent collection is free on Mondays between 12pm and 4pm, although this means the museum is also busier.
The museum features a range of different art styles, covering everything from medieval art to American realism.
If you're looking for nearby attractions you can't go wrong with the grand Atocha Station and its botanical garden
In summer the rooftop restaurant El Mirador opens. Offering up Mediterranean cuisine and views over the city, it's one of the best places to be on a hot night
If you're looking for a drink or tapas the nearby Huertas neighborhood will provide.

Un po' di storia

Why the crazy name? The museum is named after Swiss art enthusiast Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, who made his money in glass, plastics, auto parts, and container leasing. His private collection of sculptures, tapestries and over 1,000 old- and modern-master paintings was the second largest after Queen Elizabeth’s of England. ‘Bornemisza’ apparently means “drinks no wine” in Hungarian.

Bringing the art to Madrid was controversial from the start. Initially, he implied that he would donate the collection for free and he persuaded the city to build the facilities. Then he decided to rent the collection for UDS 5 million a year until he eventually agreed to sell it to Spain for USD 350 million. This all proved very unpopular and the newspapers were unhappy, but the baron joked that he couldn’t read Spanish.
