Nearly one thousand works are on display at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, and many of them predate the building by centuries. Built in 1988, the museum is the culmination of a decades-long love affair with the arts, starting first with August Thyssen, the German industrialist who had a lasting friendship with Auguste Rodin (of which the Thyssen-Bornemisza’s four Rodins are a result). These days, the museum is a cultural hub, with a number of classes, activities and tours for children and families.
