Located in a unique setting in the historic centre of Madrid, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza has numerous rooms for private use: following a tour of the Permanent Collection or of a Temporary Exhibition, working sessions can be held in the Lecture Hall, small meetings in the Press Room, receptions in the Mirador, cocktails in the garden and large, gala dinners in the Central Hall.
The use of wood in its construction gives this space excellent acoustics. The Hall has perfect visibility through the alignment of its 187 leather-covered seats. It is equipped with cutting-edge systems of video and audio projection as well as translation booths. The Lecture Hall is suitable for presentations, lectures, award ceremonies, film showings, debates and concerts.
Located at the entrance to the Palacio de Villahermosa, this great Hall with its 15 metre-high ceiling is presided over by a magnificent painting by Tintoretto. Combined with the Museum’s vestibule and the Temporary Exhibitions Hall, it offers an ideal space for cocktails and gala dinners.
This Lobby provides access to the Temporary Exhibitions Gallery and is ideal for a cocktail at the end of a visit. It offers a fine view of the Museum’s garden from its windows.
This is a privileged location in which to enjoy an outdoor reception when the Museum is closed to the public. It offers an alternative to other Rooms available in the Museum when fine weather permits.
The location of this area allows it to be used during the day for breakfasts, pre-lunch drinks and light lunches. It is also suitable for ending a visit to the Museum with a private tea.
Located on the top floor of the new building, the views from its terrace look over the Paseo del Prado in the historic heart of Madrid. Its location makes it highly suitable for private receptions both during the day when the Museum is open, and at night after it has closed.
