Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza reviews
There are a lot of museums in Madrid. If you only have time for one, this is the one I recommend. The works are well displayed. It was very enjoyable.

We loved it, plenty of benches to sit and expositions to enjoy. No issue taking photos in the gallery. Free cloakroom service.

Beautiful drawings! As a person who is "not that much into art" I had a lot of fun and was very impressed. From what I read, they have the second biggest private collection in the world, with more than 1600 paintings/drawings. I saw different (styles?) of painting and it was beautiful. Take in account that the museum is big, and that for some of the paintings there is an explanation, so I recommend to go with headphones.
I liked this museum a lot because, apart from the wide variety of paintings it has, there is also a companion app called "Second Canvas Thyssen Museum" which lets you see very high resolution pictures of quite a few paintings and also tells you all about its history and characteristics. At the time I was there, there was a temporary exhibition about Georgia O'Keeffe, which was also very nice and informing. All in all, a cool museum that has also been able to incorporate some modern features to its experience. I would recommend that you visit even if you "aren't really a paintings kind of person" (like me) because there are certainly some paintings which are worth visiting on their own.
