4 280 Reviews | Add your review

Made up of the city’s three leading art museums—the Prado Museum, the Reina-Sofia Museum, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum—Madrid’s Golden Triangle ranks among the world’s most important museum complexes. Here’s what you need to know to plan your visit.

Prado Museum (Museo del Prado)
With its expansive collection of 12th- to 19th-century European art, the Prado Museum also includes numerous paintings and sculptures from the Spanish Royal Collection, the most famous being Las Meninas by Diego Velazquez. Take a dedicated tour of the museum or visit on a walking art tour of Madrid. 

Reina Sofia Museum (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia)
The nearby Reina-Sofia Museum is devoted to modern art and home to classic works including Pablo Picasso’s Guernica, more than 20 Dali paintings, and an entire room dedicated to Joan Miro’s works. Art lovers can choose a guided small-group tour of the museum’s collection or a private tour with skip-the-line access.

Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum
The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum contains one of the world’s most important personal art collections, featuring more than 1,000 pieces amassed by Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza and his son Hans Heinrich. Works span the 13th to the late 20th centuries, including classics by Van Dyck, Rubens, Rembrandt, Titian, Picasso, O’Keeffe, and Kandinsky, to name just a few. Enhance your visit with a private guided tour (with skip-the-line access to beat the crowds), or visit on a Golden Triangle of Art walking tour.
