So here is the deal… I booked museum tickets months before I left. As in, I booked my flight and then booked museum tickets (before hotels). I highly recommend booking tickets in advance as you can skip the queues this way. I studied Art History in college and have far more knowledge on art and history than I even know what to do with. I was reading my Fodor’s Spain book and saw that Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza housed Edgar Degas, my favorite artist, and I was sold. The exterior surrounding the museum is so pretty! I was snapping pictures before I even went inside.
There are so many paintings in this museum! It was one of my favorites. Fodor’s didn’t lead me astray (they hardly ever do). Below are a few pictures I snapped while inside… yes they were permitted, I asked.
