The exhibition by the other artist was very disappointing. Picassos work was very limited and made me feel slightly disheartened. Lovely terrace though

Lots of Picasso ceramics (that are not in the newly renovated Paris museum) and great location with wonderful views of the Med.

The collection of Picasso paintings is OK with nothing spectacular. I was more impressed by the sketches which illustrate how he developed the shapes and forms in his paintings. The view from "balcony" is great and it is easy to understand why Picasso was happy to live here for a period of time.

This museum is unfortunately entered into Trip Advisor twice, so to see the full review visit the other entry. In short, it was an outstanding little museum, well worth the six euro admission, and really and significantly expanded my knowledge of the artist and his works. Loved it; one of the best little museums I've ever visited (and I'm not... More

Can't beat the historic Grimaldi Palace with spectacular view of sea with great works of art from Picasso art when he lived in Antibes in 1946-?. La Joie de vivre worth a trip. In midst of old Antibes surrounded by sea views, great restaurants.

We didn't know Picasso was into painting on plates. Naturally his genius shows through on whatever he did and the collection of his pottery painting was both interesting and distinctive. its also worth the strolling the ramparts to the grand house that stages the museum exhibits as this part of Antibes, built during the Roman times, obviously hasn't changed much...

Beautiful museum to experience the beautiful painting of Picasso. The rooms are spacious which allows you to see the painting not only close by but also with a bit of distance. It is lovely to enjoy the view on the balcony after spending some time inside.

Found this an amusing experience and I want to avoid upsetting anyone with this review. Picasso was an important artist solely (for us) because of his individualism but it is fair to say that we felt there are a lot of deluded people in the world if this really is art. Maybe we are just heathens but some of Picasso's... More

The gift shop was the best part of this museum. Lovely building but a really boring collection of sketches. Disappointing.
