This is the way to collect art. Two of everything. What a fabulous way for a wealthy person to spend money and then to show us all what one has bought. Oh and there are two very lovely cafes.

I went in a Saturday and the lines everywhere were so long! Fortunately I bought this pass and went straight to the front, got my tickets and enjoyed my day. Worth it

Excellent guide. Excellent language skills. Very knowledgeable. Picked all the right highlights from the collection.

Enjoyed the Thyssen best (more diversity), then Prado, not so much the Reina Sofia

Nice to have booked entrance from home, then you are sure to get in.
