Admission: € 6
The Carmen Thyssen Museum is located in the former Palacio de Villalón, a palace from the 16th century, and first opened its doors to the public in 2011. The decor is light and modern. Museum Carmen Thyssen Malaga can be found right in the city centre of Malaga..
The works of art it contains have been put on public view thanks to Spanish Carmen Cervera, last wife of wealthy Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, who died in 2002.
The three storey building houses works by old masters from the 13th to the 17th century and paintings from the ‘fin de siècle’ era. The museum mainly specialises in Spanish, and particularly Andalusian painting.
The latter collection consists of Andalusian art, in which you can clearly recognise the landscapes and atmosphere of Andalusia of the past.
There is both a permanent collection on display and also regularly changing exhibitions on the top floor.
