Situated in the Villahermosa Palace (8 Paseo del Prado), the collection of the Thyssen Museum of Madrid counts with almost 1,000 pieces of arts that recount the history of art from the 13th Century until the end of the 20th Century.

Besides, the museum hosts some temporal exhibitions of prestigious contemporary artists such as for instance the complete representation of the Spanish artist Antonio López. This exhibition includes drawings, paintings and some sculptures.

The museum is part of the “Madrid golden triangle art” which three axis are: The Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Queen Sofia Museum. Those 3 museums are internationally important and there are surrounded by more than 47 galleries so that renting an accommodation in Madrid in El Retiro is the best way to visit those three museums.
