You can tell this by the many smiling faces on his paintings and sketches on display. A great display of his genius may be seen in the wall of ceramic plates...each unique, each fascinating. Very impressive.

Picasso donated his many works during staying the castle on beach in Antibes with his feelings of gratitude.

This Picasso museum is located in an old palace that was once owned by Monaco's ruling family as it bears their name? Cool building at any rate and art collection. Prefer the one in Barcelona however.

I love the old building that houses the museum and the work displayed there gives us a more thorough look at the work that he has done. Too bad we could take photos inside. I am not looking to take photos on specific work; I just want to take photos of my friends inside some of the rooms. There were... More

Good selection of art, well-presented in a charming building....the Grimaldi Chateau. Picasso actually painted here. The rooms are well-scaled (not vast and huge) to make the visit feel intimate. The sea views from the terrace are wonderful. A very tasteful place. Don't miss it!

If you're looking for more insight into Picasso's life than the paintings you see at art museum exhibits, then this is the museum for you. First off, the Chateau Grimaldi is a fabulous location for this museum. You can spend a good deal of time just staring out at the Mediterranean Sea and the boat traffic from the Chateau's terrace....

There is something satisfying about being in a building which featured as one time residence and studio of the artist - as if the experience of being there draws you closer to the man behind the art. I particularly enjoyed a collection of photos of Picasso in a fun mood when he was working in what was once known as... More

Good to see so many works by Picasso in one place, but only really covered the brief period he spent in Antibes. Loved the chateau. Would have liked more explanation in English and a better audio visual display. There is a discount for over 65s but this was not offered and only discovered after entry.

This is a must-see when in Antibes. The Chateau Grimaldi is exquisite, well preserved, an optimal location for some of Picasso's best work. Outstanding sea views from the terrace and rampart leading up to the entrance. Architecturally, environmentally - a photographer's dream. Even for an infrequent museum-goer, a highly enjoyable experience.
