One of the great art collectors in our country is Carmen Thyssen, who not only has her great art collection in the Thyssen Museum in Madrid but also has a small collection in some other city in our country. The Carmen Thyssen Museum in Malaga is a good example of this.
It is in the historic center of the city, very close to the Plaza de la Constitución, in the Palacio de Villalón , a spectacular 16th century building that has been renovated and rehabilitated on several occasions since it is architecturally wonderful. The building has two floors and an interior patio that has several galleries, all of them very spacious.
It is here where you can find the Thyssen Collection , in facilities that have been specially created to house this collection and also become the Malaga headquarters of the Thyssen Foundation. The museum also has a library, an archaeological exhibition room and, of course, a huge store where you can get a lot of souvenirs related to what is exhibited there.
In total there are about 5,000 square meters available for the various exhibitions that take place throughout the year, since in addition to having a permanent collection it houses others that may or may not be from the Thyssen collection. In principle, this museum will last until the year 2025, so you have a lot of time ahead of you to go visit it and contemplate some of the more than 200 works that are exhibited there.
Two museum floors to take a spectacular tour of some of the most important works of art in history. Undoubtedly an excellent cultural proposal that you can enjoy when you are in the city and that has been created with great dedication since Baroness Thyssen is very fond of this city.
