A spacious exhibition space in Escaldes-Engordany
The new Carmen Thyssen Museum in Andorra is located on the ground floor of the former Hotel Valira, a historic listed building that is one of the best examples of granite architecture in Andorra. This museum stretches across 500 m2, with 250 m2 dedicated to exhibition space. The space is fully wheelchair-accessible and boasts the latest advances in museum technology. New technologies play a fundamental role: interactive displays allow visitors to interact with the artwork, offering additional information and alternative points of view.

The exhibitions at the Thyssen Museum in Andorra include some of the best works from the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza private collection. Originating from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid and other galleries owned by the Baroness, the Andorran museum houses masterpieces from the 19th and 20th centuries that represent the main art movements of the time: French and American Impressionism, Catalan Modernism, Fauvism, Cubism, German Expressionism, American Hyperrealism. The exhibitions are held annually, changing every eleven months and allowing for the creation of ‘mixed exhibitions’ in collaboration with other museums from around the world. Each year, the gallery will welcome new works to surprise even the most frequent visitor.
