Reina Sofia Museum (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia)

Art lovers can choose a guided small-group tour of the museum’s collection or a private tour with skip-the-line access.

Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum contains one of the world’s most important personal art collections, featuring more than 1,000 pieces amassed by Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza and his son Hans Heinrich. Works span the 13th to the late 20th centuries, including classics by Van Dyck, Rubens, Rembrandt, Titian, Picasso, O’Keeffe, and Kandinsky, to name just a few.
