After the length renovation I was expecting something spectacular. But was really disappointed. The thematic hang of the works doesn't quite work. The best part of the Museum is Picasso's collection of other artists including Cezanne and Matisse, quite a few of which were on loan elsewhere.

This museum is excellent. They have so much art and there is a lot to see. Some people complained about the crowds, but we didn't have any issues with crowds because we went about an hour before closing time.

I loved this museum before the renovation.... and now (after a long time closed ) I don't see where there were any improvements (except for the air-conditioning). It almost seems like there are fewer of his major works than before - it just seems to be lacking. It's very disappointing....

There was a line of about 15 people in the rat race of tape leading up to the entry. Standing in full sun on a 34 degree day, the girl let in about 6 people then blocked off the entry. 10 minutes later still waiting people come down the pre paid entry and are let through imediatley. 5 minutes later...

The Paris Pass is applicable here, so I'd advise getting one. Entry is upon the hour, which we didn't know, and so had a half hour wait, but once the hour struck, our passes got us priority. Apparently, this museum has the largest collection of Picasso paintings in the world. Which is good, because this means that if (like me)... More

If you want to feel like a sardine and be pushed and shoved in some of the world' best art then this is the place for you. The lines were insane even with the reserved showing we had. Plus we had bought two extra tour guide admissions and to get the refund the ticket staff had to more 3-4 phone... More

I'm not an art person and don't know painting at all. Due to air traffic control strike, I'm stuck in Paris! A very good chance to visit Musee Picasso after their re-opening! Huge collection of Picasso work. It definitely worth to go if you are an art people. The building itself is gorgeous. But your ticket is only allowed to... More

I visited the place before the renovations several times and loved it. So while I was in Paris again, I decided to go visit the new renovated museum. Well, I have to say that the building looks better and have air conditioning, but I was disappointed in the exhibition itself. Definitely, the paintings had more space and were displayed better,...

Before I visited I was more interested in visiting the museum to see the actual building the art was housed in since it is an old mansion in the Marais that had been recently restored. I was less interested in Picasso's art and figured I would check out the museum since it was free with the Paris Museum Pass. I... 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.
