Very picturesque place for 1,5 hr visit. Great pieces of art, and an amazing photo gallery, pieces of art which are not allowed to leave Antibes.

Location and exhibition are amazing and very interesting. I really recommend to visit it. Unfortunately there were many visitors and some of them were too noisy and annoying. Kids and adults as well: speaking and laughing out loud, touching protection glass. Nobody from the staff reminded to keep the silence and respect other visitors. What a pity!

We visited the museum at the end of August. The whole family enjoyed the museum especially my daughter who is an art student at Leeds University. There are lots of nice pieces by Picasso accompanied by some excellent photos of the man and his wife. The museum isn't solely dedicated to Picasso and there were other nice pieces of art... More

Besides the fact that it's nicely airconditioned ;-) the museum holds a lovely collection of photographs, paintings, drawings and sculptures by/of Picasso, as well as some other (modern) artists, which my kids even loved more (especially Hans Hartung). Don't forget to walk outside for some more sculptures and a lovely sea view!

The museum has many pieces from the time Picasso spent in Antibes in the 1940's. It is wonderful because all through it are the photos of Picasso taken by an astounding photojournalist.mdont miss the video of the photographer. It is exceptional. Also, the sculpture garden. The view of the ocean is equally exquisite.

Probably one of the better attractions in Antibes, but in comparison to galleries in other cities it's not that impressive. Nice view of the coast, nice building, some Picasso art and some photo collections of his life in Antibes. Worth a visit when in Antibes but I wouldn't travel to see it.

This is a beautiful and special museum. Make sure you see the balcony and the statues looking over the Mediterranean.

What a beautiful home Picasso had. It's hard to see why he only spent a little time there. Good collection, small enough to tour within a couple of hours. My children, 6 and 9 didn't really enjoy it. Good for older kids/adults. Good museum.
