A lovely collection of Picasso ceramics paintings and drawings from his 1946/7 period when he was based here in this lovely seaside resort. The chateau in which it is based is in a wonderful location right on the seafront. Fabulous. Not the most convenient opening hours though.

It was an incredible experience to take the same stairs and look out the same windows as the great artist Picasso had done. Not to be missed if you are an admirer of his. The seaside castle holds many paintings and ceramics that Picasso himself chose for the museum. To stand in the very same studio in which he worked... More

The museum itself is situated within the battlements of an ancient fortress. The museum has fine drawings and ceramics from the hands of Picasso. Also a beautiful view over the coastline!

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 !
