I was very much looking forward to this museum, not because I know much about art but because my daughter has been studying Picasso's cubism art for her GCSE. I purchased the multi media ticket as I was lead to believe the paintings would be explained and I might glean some understanding. We collected our devices and headphones and were... More

This museum doesn't take a museum pass, and it is hard to find, It cost €10 to entry, but the audio is reservation only, If I can't listen to the audio of painting, how i can understand the painting, I left without going in the museum.

We visited four months after it reopened after a five year refurbishment and were fantastically underwhelmed. In place of the rather eccentric charming interior of the Hotel Sale is a series of over-designed spaces that nevertheless seem featureless. It was hard to see what they had intended with the lighting which is both intrusive and ineffectual and the layout is... More

I thought I didn't, but found the museum extraordinary. First of all, the mansion housing the art collection is beautiful and the art perfectly displayed. But as someone who is not a great art fancier, I found Picaso's works a complete surprise. They're not just cubist figures with eyes on one side of the face and extra body parts, but... More

Having been to other museums housing works of Picasso, including the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, I left Parisian version after a brief stroll around the museum. While it does provide a well-presented look at the artist's career, it is oddly laid out, a bit difficult to navigate, and despite the extensive renovation, hugely overcrowded, so there is really only brief...

We absolutely recommend booking prior to your visit otherwise you will have to queue. We cannot compare with the old building, so took it as we found it. It was a bit of a confusing layout, and quite hard to avoid blocking off other people's view whilst still being able to have a look yourself. Quite big tour groups with... More

After years of being closed for renovation, the museum is finally reopened. A large collection of Picasso's from many periods in his life. A wonderful retrospective of his amazing career. BUT, get advance tickets, as the lines are long and the crowds large. A must see though

I'll come back to the art itself later but my main concern is with the museum itself. Its website is clear in that it suggests you book your ticket, complete with entry time, in advance but, hey, we went on a weekday in February and in the middle of the day. What could go wrong? Well, on arrival in the... More

The museum is a beautiful mansion and houses an amazing collection of Picasso's work, as well as masterpeices from other artists that he had in his private collection. It is astounding the volume and variety of art he produced.
