Sharing building with National Museum is based on pieces from the Iberian Peninsula, from Prehistory to Early-Modern Age
The story of Spain's ancient times told with archeological objects in a recently renovated historical building that is the back of the National Library, with the full size replica of the Altamira caves, with the astonishing pre-historic paintings. Nice little front garden and cafeteria.
A wonderful museum tracing the history of Spain through a diverse range of objects. A real treat and some extraordinary exhibits. 3euros!

“With over 1,600 paintings, it was once the second largest private collection in the world after the British Royal Collection. A competition was held to house the core of the collection in 1987–88 after Baron Thyssen, having tried to enlarge his Museum in Lugano(Villa Favorita), searched for a location in Europe. The Thyssen-Bornemisza fills the historical gaps in its counterparts' collections: in the Prado's case this includes Italian primitives and works from the English, Dutch and German schools, while in the case of the Reina Sofia it concerns Impressionists, Expressionists, and European and American paintings from the 20th century. ”
