It has the best collection of Picasso's paintings and his own art collection. Great museum and very nice building. I recommend to buy online tickets because there are long queues. Excellent museum! Mandatory visit if you are in Paris.

The Picasso Museum has recently re-opened after extensive refurbishment. The sixteenth century building has been tastefully treated and feels welcoming and spacious. The museum still houses a wonderful range of Picasso paintings - including many early ones that may surprise those only familiar with Picasso's later work. There is now a collection of paintings that Picasso himself owned. Best to... More

We were able to visit the new Musee Picasso in the first week after its opening. Making a reservation was straightforward, and we were glad to have one. The old museum space has been completely redone, and the viewing areas are now up to a world-class standard for holding the institution's world-class collection. However, the organization is highly idiosyncratic. Instead... More

This recently renovated museum holds what is probably the largest collection of Picasso's work in the world. The renovation has been beautifully done and the work is presented chronologically. it contains paintings, drawings and sculptures and the attic holds some of his personal collection of art together with objects which were clearly an inspiration for some of his work. One... More

My wife and I visited the Musee with advanced tickets. For me it was more out of curiosity than passion about Picasso. My wife has seen more of his work in Spain than I and was more interested. I'm glad we made the visit. Seeing this artists work over the length of his life gave me a better appreciation of... More

Or if you like to wait in long lines,. longer than the Louvre's,... no wait, longer than the Eiffel's! I know "If you book online , you skip the line" however since this is no longer a secret , everyone buys their tickets online,, of course u will wait 2-3 hours less than the others! The inside of the museum... More

It may be unfair to complain about the wait (over an hour) as we were there on a Saturday in November and we hadn't booked a ticket. I may also be a philistine for not getting the point of a lot of the works on show, most of which were for me frankly unappealing or dull. However wait we did... More

The Musee National Picasso-Paris has reopened its doors in the splendid Hotel Sale edifice in the heart of Le Marais, nothing could be more idyllic. I had failed to make an advance online reservation to visit and therefore was a bit skeptical about the wait in the rain to get in. Fortunately someone with an extra reserved ticket offered me...

Set aside a good 2-3 hours to get the best of this place. Incredible range of pieces from 14 till his death. Three of us all with varied tastes all got something out of it, which for a single artist museum is a rarity. Can't recommend it enough
