When we're in the Cote d'Azur we often visit the Musee Picasso. Although Picasso only used the top-floor studio within Chateau Grimaldi for a couple of months, it is well worth visiting to get a sense of where he worked They have a good small collection of photos of him at work there. They also have a number of interesting... More

I always enjoy visiting the Picasso Museum at Antibes. Picasso was in an inventive and sunny mood when he was here and it shows in his marvellous and imaginative work. Leaving it behind in Antibes to the lasting benefit of the town was a fabulous gesture of thanks. And it's not just his paintings and drawings but also marvellous ceramics,... More

Picasso visited this site for a short period which is why it is now called Musee Picasso. You will find paintings and sketches that he did during his stay on the top floor of the museum. Paintings and statues from other artists are on the other floors. Personally, I would not go out of my way to visit this museum,... More

My favorite part of this museum is the outdoor area with sculptures and amazing views of the Mediterranean. The building that the museum is housed in is also very beautiful. It was not a large collection so we visited in about an hour or so but I'm so glad we did. It made for an enjoyable, air conditioned respite on... More

If in Antibes please visit this gorgeous museum. The view of the Mediterranean is breathtaking. The museum itself has limited art work by Picasso himself. Some say he had students make the art and then he signed them- for instance the platters. It is an intimate museum - referring to size - and you can visit it in under an... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Musee Picasso. It is more intimate than some of the large museums that we visited in Paris and offers the unique experience of seeing his works of art in the place where he created them. Throughout the museum there are photographs of Picasso at work. Touring the museum was just as beautiful as the views outside... More

Some of the reviews on here are rather negative ahout the picasso museum because, particularly on the lower levels of the building much of the art is from other artists. I think this is a little unfair. On the upper levels there is a substantial and impressive collection. I could have spent longer there than we did - travellin with... More

It is a beautiful museum, in a great location, the work is well displayed, but the collection is quite limited.
