Málaga: Carmen Thyssen Museum Ticket

2. Málaga: Carmen Thyssen Museum Ticket

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.

based on 578 reviews

This was such a fun, interactive and unique way to tour a city! It's also perfect to do with children (we have twin 3-year olds and a 5-year old). They stayed entertained trying to solve clues. I especially loved the recommendations given for places to stop and eat, have a drink, do some shopping, etc. Highly recommend!

Easy purchase. The app is very helpful in knowing when the next bus will be along. It's sold as 10-7 but the first bus didn't come to the first stop till 11. That would have been important info. Bus stops seem well placed to the major places.

Very specific collection devoted to Spanish artisy. You get visual informayionabout the life of spanish people in various periods. Its like an historic way through Spain, costumes, scenes

Done with two children aged 6 and 9. They loved it... And now know the city like the back of their hand.

Loved the sights, busses were clean, drivers friendly.
