The Musée Picasso is a fantastic art museum and is located in the Marais area of Paris. It is located in the Hotel Sale which is a beautifully restored 17th century mansion. The mansion and its interior courtyard are fabulous. I really liked the grand staircase that leads you upstairs. The mansion is newly renovated and opened in October 2014... More

My wife and I really enjoyed the renovated Musee Picasso in Paris. Get the audio guide. It offers two tours--use the longer one--it is not really longer, but it allows you to select more options (paintings, sculptures, artwork) in each of the rooms. They do a nice job of showing how he did his version of a few works by... More

I didn't think I would see that in person in my lifetime. There is nothing more to say. You should probably like Picasso if you go, its pretty much all Picasso all the time.

The newly opened Picasso Museum displays works from all of P's long carreer - works that he kept for himself or could not sell. And ones that were probably passed onto the French state in lieu of an inheritance tax by the family ... All told, this is a very interesting museum with interesting works of art - but here... More

Great collection of works of Picasso right from his initial years till later years. Also houses some of the painting of other artists that inspired him. Do no leave Paris without seeing it. Takes about 3 hours to see the whole thing at a glance. More visits can be made by the serious Picasso lover.

Although we had booked tickets for 11.30 am there was a huge queue - not cool when standing in the rain. Its a wonderful collection of course and you need to allow yourself at least 2 hours to make it round the 2 or 3 floors and extensive rooms. Its quite easy to miss a room or two but there... More

A must visit for the lovers of the genius. After a long wait the renovations have been done and the museum itself is a piece of art. Not to be missed.

A wonderful, renovated and newly re-opened museum! The museum is rather big, spread on 4 floors (with underground), with rooms spacious; the collection is great and the price is also correct (11Euro). I loved the nocturnal opening on 3rd Friday of the month. This museum is a must!

Musée Picasso is a fantastic museum and gallery. It is interesting, to the point, and housed in a great space being both a beautiful historic building, but with a modern interior perfect for a more modern artist. The big fault I had with it though is the amount of people they let in at the same time. I pre-purchased a... More

The Hotel Salee has been recently renovated and provides a beautiful, light, spacious setting for a huge collection showing Picasso's development as an artist. Thee top floor, under timber beams, contains his own personal collection of works by fellow artists. It becomes crowded very quickly. I would advise arriving as soon as possible after opening time to avoid queuing, even... More
