  • It should. The document HT207266 "Connect devices and displays with the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter" on Apple's support website says that the adapter will allow Thunderbolt displays to work with the Thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pro 2016.

    I've used the adapter on a PC to connect a Thunderbolt 2 dock.

    I've read that people are able to use Thunderbolt displays on PC's that have Thunderbolt 2 ports.

    Apple says (in HT204154) that Mac computers can use a Thunderbolt display in Windows.

    Since the adapter works on both Mac or PC products to allow connecting Thunderbolt 2 devices, and that Thunderbolt displays are Thunderbolt 2 devices, and that Thunderbolt displays work in Windows, then it should work.

    Actually, I found a video on youtube that showed an Apple Thunderbolt Display connected to a PC with a Thunderbolt 3 add-in card using the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter.
