Hugely disappointing. The original Picasso Museum was one of the best museums in Paris. In the original a visitor followed a single path through the rooms of a chateau that followed Picasso's career as an artist, from early to late. It was an ingenious way to show his development as an artist, the various phases of his genius and all... More

Could have spent a couple more hours here. Beautiful space/building in a very nice part of the city with boutiques, cafes and restaurants. The works were curated well so it wasn't overwhelming or boring - as it can be if your day has been packed with museum-going. Was thankful for it not to be too busy as well. Good insight... More

This is the ideal way to see a selection of Picasso´s works along with some of his paintings by other modern masters like Matisse and Cezanne. The museum is located inside a restored 17th century building in the Marais district. It is light and attractive and the works – paintings, drawings, sculptures, engravings, ceramics etc. - are spread over four... More

I have visited the Musee Picasso a few years ago and I was keen to visit it again after its complete refurbishment. Unfortunately I was really disappointed by the new layout. The organisation of the exhibits is confusing and it is hard to see where all the refurbishment money went. The collection is large but somewhat disappointing. I am in... More

The museum was good but sadly they were out of their audio guides so it'd be better if you booked your tickets and audio guide online before you got to the museum

I don't know, once I got to the museum I was not blown away by the work. Picasso was very prolific but a lot of his stuff was mediocre. Also, I did not love the staff, so maybe I was just in a bad mood? But they wanted to chase everyone out of there right at closing time. My friends... More

Closed for a while for renovations, this museum is a Paris must see. The renovation has greatly improved most aspects of the facility and it is good to see it busy and well appreciated by visitors. here you will find examples of most of Picasso's different periods and in all shapes and sizes. It is a testament to the man's... More

This museum was recently renovated and is located in the Marais. It is a wonderful old mansion and the renovations were outstanding. If you admire Picasso you will love this place and this outstanding collection of his fabulous work. And if you don't like Picasso you will still enjoy a visit to this museum just to enjoy the creativity of... More

This is the best Picasso Museum in the world. There are four floors of work, both paintings and sculptures. If you go past the first floor, the area will open up and it won't be as crowded. The restrooms are located in the basement. Our Family recognized a number of Picasso's works. It's good for a few hours and is... 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.
