While in Paris, we planned to visit the Picasso Museum. Because it is so very popular, we invested in the Paris Museum Pass so that we could skip the lines and enter the museum without losing precious time. Imagine our great disappointment when we got to the Picasso Museum and they refused to honor the pass! The Paris Museum Pass... More

Being a Picasso fan, I was in awe of the impressive collection of Picasso's works and his private collection of the works of his peer ( eg Rousseau and Degas). Those who have always yearned to see more of his earlier works completed when he was still a teenager and works from his Blue Period will not be disappointed. The... More

Recently reopened in the remodeled Hotel Sale" the collection of over 400 works of art is like a transportation into the genius of Picasso. Many of the pieces of art were from his own collection, family members or did not sale. You could see more of his process in evolving styles and morphing other contemporary artists styles into his own.... More

The previous day I arrived at about 2.30 without a ticket but was told I couldn't get in.So I would advise booking in advance. Of course ,if you are a Picasso... More

Nice building, but the art seems almost randomly distributed within it in about the worst curating job I've ever seen. If you know a bit about Picasso's work, you;ll see some interesting pieces, If you're mostly ignorant about Picasso's art when you enter, later you'll depart the same way. Buy a book on Picasso instead--you'll learn something and save some... More

A few things you need to know - the Marais section is very lively, with lots and lots of small shops, restaurants, bars, galleries etc. The hours for the Museum are limited - closed Mondays (ok), and then only 11:30 - 6 for non-weekend. You MUST reserve a headset when you obtain your tickets, or else there are not available.... More

I'm not a museum expert, but I really felt that this museum was very poorly planned in terms of logistics. First of all, it is not included in the Paris museum pass (despite appearing in the Paris museum pass guide), which doomed me to wait in an outdoor line in the courtyard for more than an hour. When I finally... More

We had not arranged for tickets and arrived one afternoon to see long lines waiting for tickets. We did not go in, but later tried to get tickets for the next day online. They were sold out. We went the next morning at the 9:30 opening time and went right in. Unfortunately, the audio guides were sold out for the... More
