The other reviews are on target to say the organization is a bit confusing. But if you are a fan of Picasso, you really want to see this collection of work that spans 1901 to 1971. It can be a bit overwhelming, but let me strongly suggest floor 2, featuring his war-related work, including the stunning Massacre of Korea. Floor... More

-my favourite part of the museum ended up being photographs of Pablo Picasso over the years, and also the building itself- truly amazing tucked right in the heart of the Marais. The top floors have works of other famous artists, and the venue is superb. There is a great variety of his work. The individual walking guide is very informative... More

I will start by saying that this is definitely worth a visit for the art. However, there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to the organization and very little information, even with the audio guide which often fails and only includes about 15% of the art despite promises of 'almost all'. I finally asked two staff members if... More

This is an outstanding collection of art in a very beautiful building. The collection shows the development of Picassos style. The are many stairs, but also an elevator. There is a coffee shop, and a souvenier shop selling related Picasso products. It is well worth the effort winding your way to the cobbled streets of the Marais. The museum opens... More

Great Picasso collection in a remodeled museum that hasn't long reopened. Make sure you book tickets as queues were long even on a cold wet January day. The museum has a really good flow and in a chronological display of Picasso's work starting with sketches and early paintings as a teenager through to his last material in the early 1970's.... More

A rather good experience that takes your through the different periods of Picasso's life and how it influenced his art. Lastly is a selection of the artists he took inspiration from to put things into perspective. Come early on a rainy day :)

Many master pieces of Picasso can be seen with one our queue on holiday in center of Paris. We visited here afternoon. Queue was around 1 hour which might be shorter than Orsay/Louvre in teh after noon. You can enjoy many master pieces of Picasso here.

The reason for only four stars is that we paid for a guided tour and then were told to just walk around when we got inside. It's a smaller museum with large crowds, but there is a lift for those who need it. The collection is very nice.

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.
