The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza is located in The Villahermosa Palace which was the house of the Villahermosa duke. The building is from the XVIII century; but the duke’s wife ordered its redecoration in a neoclassical style. Years later, this building became a bank and after its bankruptcy, it was passed to the state. In this building, some temporal expositions were done when there was no space in El Museo del Pardo until its opening as a museum in 1992. In 2004, it was extended in order to exhibit the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza collection. Nowadays, the museum has more than 1000 pieces.

In this museum, we can find masters from the XIII to the XX century. They are exhibited in chronological order. Some of the most important are the Italian and German Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Realism, Impressionism, Pop Art, etc. And some of the most famous artists, whose work is exposed in the museum, are: Lorenzo Monaco, Fra Angelico, Vittore Carpaccio, Durero, Hans Baldung Grien, Van Eyck, Rubens, Goya, Manet, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Lucian Freud, etc. The Thyssen-Bornemisza, el Prado and Reina Sofia museums are part of the “Triangulo del Arte” (Triangle of Arts).
