AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The result of two generations of collecting by the wealthy Thyssen-Bornemisza family and now owned by the nation, this museum has strong collections from many periods. The best way to visit is to begin at the second floor and work your way down. This gives you a chronological introduction to European art, starting with the Italian Primitives and passing through the 15th-, 16th- and 17th-century art of Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. The first floor takes you through the rest of the 17th century and impressionism and expressionism. The ground floor is dedicated to avant-garde experiments and surrealism, as well as temporary exhibitions. The building is a late-18th century palace and a beautiful example of neoclassical architecture.
