Not just for Picasso lovers. Great museum

Although I'm a fan, I was never a huge fan of Picasso. This museum changed that. A true education in to his life and art. This is a must see in Paris.

4 floors of Picasso. Good audio/ visual companion, but doesn't cover every piece. Laid out well in grouping that make sense. Well lit. Gift shop in Barcelona much better than this one. Collection is in a beautiful building

I confess to not being a Picasso fan and certainly to not understanding his art, so my enjoyment of this amazing museum was a very pleasant surprise. For the non art lover seeing the strange images in the flesh mskes them infinitely more accessible than in a book or on film. They really come to life. The other surprise is... More

An excellent renovation and so good to see so many Picassos all together in the same place. There were many things I had not seen before, particularly the Cubist sculptures of musical instruments. The exterior of the building is nothing out of the ordinary, but inside the cellar and attic floors add atmosphere. The cafe was quite small but good.

People who are knowledgeable about Picasso’s work, as well as novices can enjoy visiting the remodeled and reopened Picasso Museum. My wife and I visited this museum about 12 years ago and were pleasantly surprised about how much it has been rebuilt for the convenience of visitors. We used the elevator (lift), rather than stairs as in old building, to... More

The collection of Picasso works - not just paintings but so many other things (ceramics, engravings, sculptures) that he "dabbled in" are displayed in the former Hotel Sale in the Marais district. If you don't like Picasso, then keep on going up to the third floor and see his private collection and you will come away thinking "Heh this guy... More

the museum reopened last fall to a lot of fanfare after being closed for years and entry at that time was almost impossible. It is much easier now to arrange tickets on line and the hype has died down. The museum has many works of Picasso that one has probably not seen before and therefore will strike the average person...

I never realized that Picasso was such an all-around talented artist -- realistic as well as abstract oil painter, sculptor, metalworker, collage artist. The building in which his work and personal collection is housed is beautiful. Well-worth visiting.

We all enjoyed our visit here, primarily because of the numerous works of art of the great Picasso that were exhibited, but also because the museum generated a vibe of both calm and liveliness. You will appreciate the story of Picasso as you go through the paintings and sculptures that are well positioned within the museum. This trip won't bore... More

Nice Collection of the different periods of Picasso in a beautiful newly renovated building, light and spacious. Book your ticket on the internet not to have to stand in line. Enjoy!!

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.
