Full description
Go to the newly restored Museo Carmen Thyssen in Málaga, and see stunning examples of 19th-century Spanish and Andalucían art.

You have the option to tour on your own, or with a guide for added information. Explore the permanent collection, temporary collection, or both.

Whichever option you choose, you will get time to admire the beautiful 16th-century Palacio de Villalón, a key example of the city’s Renaissance architecture. The palace was built over the remains of the Roman city, within the old Moorish quarter of Málaga, and restoration focused on the recovery of its original layout, combined with newly built areas that co-exist in an understated manner.

Arranged over 2 floors around a central courtyard, surrounded by arcaded galleries, particularly notable elements are the carved wooden ceilings and supporting fretwork in the principal rooms, where a number of 17th-century Spanish paintings are on display.

Adjoining the palace are various new buildings designed in a contemporary style to house the permanent and temporary exhibitions.

From its outset the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza collection has been admired for its wide-ranging scope and rigorous quality, presenting a comprehensive survey of 19th-century Spanish painting genres, with a particular focus on Andalusia.

it was nice experience to see how the way of painting changing through the years. I loved mostly paintings with small details - great work! it is so easy for us to capture the moment but for them it took months or years. That was my experience, was it worth the money? I don't know. I had a feeling that I missed something.
