Founded in 1992 in the Villahermosa Palace at Paseo del Prado 8 in central Madrid, Spain's fifth most visited museum provides a perfect complement to the two other great national art museums, the Prado and the Reina Sofía. It rotates an exceptional collection of more than a thousand works from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. These were donated by a now deceased Swiss-Dutch billionaire baron and his Spanish flight attendant wife who is still involved (hence its location in Madrid). The household names on display are too numerous to list, but just to mention a few: Cézanne, Rubens, Liechtenstein, Van Gogh, Picasso, Hopper, Rembrandt, and Dürer. It's very popular so buying tickets in advance via www.MuseoThyssen.org is an excellent idea.
