Temporary exhibitions

Tradition and history of a legacy.

One of the best private collections of paintings in the world.

For several generations, the family collected a large number of works that today are exhibited in this museum. The architect Rafael Moneo remodelled and renovated the Villahermosa Palace, a building from the early 19th century, for this very purpose. It is said that this museum is the perfect complement to the Prado and Reina Sofía museums, because it bridges the gaps in their respective collections. There are splendid works, dating from the 14th century up to the masterly pop art of the 20th century. This is a wonderful place for a journey through the different "Isms" of art, starting with Impressionism. A new building with 18 rooms, which houses the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, has recently been added to the museum. Two of these rooms are used for temporary exhibits.
