  • We were very impressed with this museum. There are up to 4 floors of paintings and all were well worthwhile.  more »
  • The Thyssen itself is a a converted villa and the gallery spaces have been beautifully laid out, making the collection easy to view and follow. The paintings are a great introduction to Spanish Art...  more »

  • Beautiful museum with a great collection. Reasonable admission costs include audio guides in many languages. Audio guides were very helpful in learning about the art and artists. Staff were extremely helpful in suggesting the flow of the galleries and information about the museum and special exhibits. Various days and times have specials on admission pricing. Lockers available free of charge. Gift shop on premises.
  • Interesting collections spread across three floors. Quite expensive to get in at €10 but make sure you ask for a discounted rate if you live in Málaga province. Apparently the café is also very good but we didn't have anything this time. The building also has some interesting characteristics so have a wander through all the rooms even if some of the art is not your style.
