The revamped museum is spacious and presents Picasso's work very well. It is worth booking ahead as even in january there was quite a queue for those without tickets. If you like picasso and want to learn more this museum is a must. It is a bit tucked away but not too difficult to find though not very close to... More

I love Picasso's work - both in its range and innovativeness and in his sense of fun. All of that is contained in this terrific collection. Also - the museum is a nice size - not overwhelming but large enough to show great range. This museum was closed for renovation when I was last in Paris, so I was glad... More

We came several times to Paris in the last years and never got a chance to see the museum open. Finally after so many years the collections are accessible. We remembered the old display and it charm. The new version is a bit cold and the homy feeling a bit lost but the art is so major... Easy to book... More

Had a great few hours looking at the collection which is really is really to large for one visit. Fantastic to see so many private documents alongside paintings that gave you a window into the man's private life. Fantastic to see some very famous and recognisable painting up close... I would would however go straight to the top and work... More

l was absolutely blown away by the amount and range of art that picasso produced. l'm no art or museum buff, but this was absolutely amazing. the museum has also been extensively restored and the building itself is amazing.

Picasso is much more than it's famous paintings So this museum offers a overview of the total collection. Recommendable.

After years of renovation, this extensive collection is finally open again. Everything looks very fresh. It's laid out more or less chronologically, following his changing styles, escapades, friends, and lovers. For me, the best treasures were on the top floor (including a stunning Dora Maar).

First visit since the re-opening of the Museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a slow winter day so no cues. The museum has been beautifully renovated and is full of information and details of Picasso's work and life. Do not underestimate it's size, it goes on up into the attic! Windows offer beautiful views over Paris. I would not... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
