Musee Picasso displays some works of Picasso, as well as photos of Picasso and his family. Laid out over three floors and a terrace garden area, the works are interesting. It is a nice museum and it was a nice visit for me.

Visited here in January 2015. We were not too impressed with the lower floors as the black and white sketches from other artists did not really appeal. There were also a lot of photographs on exhibit from a famous photographer who had captured lots of aspects of the life of Picasso and Jacqueline. However, the Picasso exhibits were interesting, especially... More

The location is breathtakingly gorgeous set in the old walled city of Antibes inside a fort and then to be surrounded by art - oh! what joy fills the heart!

I went to the Picasso Museum for the 10 (at least) time yesterday and was greatly and pleasantly surprised. I was with my 16 yr old grandson, my 19 year old granddaughter and they were astounded!! Such a beautiful yet small place to spent an hour or two. The garden was breathtaking !!! I recommend it heartily !

Paintings, drawings, sculpture and ceramics tastefully displayed in the old Grimaldi palace, very near the Marché Provencale. What most attracted me was the limited time that all of this was created by Picasso. A few months in 1946. Thereby the visitor gets an insight into the artists mind set those few months in Antibes. One thing is certain: the man... More

Picasso lived and worked in this Grimaldi Chateau. Perched on a cliff above the harbor, the setting and chateau are breath taking. Picasso's work hangs on the walls he directed, painted for these rooms with these windows in place. Simply too enchanting to be missed. Antibes is one of our favorite coastal towns, and the Musee Picasso is definitely one... More

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
