I was more impressed by the "castle"(bit of a stretch) than the artwork inside. A quarter of the works is decent, the other three quarters are crap, basic, or both. Normal people will won't spend more than an hour in here. Not bad for €6 though.

You will want to see the Picasso Musee. The art changes every time I have been. I love the old building and the ramparts across from the Marche Provencal…the setting is spectacular and worth the visit to get the photos with the sea behind and the Cap d'Antibes in view. Well I just love old Antibes anyway. It is my... More

This exhibit primarily consists of the collection of works Picasso made in 1946 when the town granted him free use of the chateau. Ceramics feature prominently, though there are also good photos of Picasso at work taken at the time. Excellent views, inexpensive and interesting - just don't expect to see any of the earlier periods of work in the... More

I am not a huge fan of art, but I would suggest that the remodelled Picasso Museum is something any visitor to the Cote d'Azur should want to see. The old castle that houses the art collection is wonderful occupying a place on the ramparts overlooking the sea. Picasso spent a large part of his life in Antibes and indeed... More

Not a big fan of the "modern art," and as i browsed this gallery, it became clear to me why. These paintings are nothing compared the my recent trips to the Vatican museum, and the Louvre. I spent hours browsing through those two museums, and after 30 min in this museum, i had seen enough. That should tell you everything.... More

Have seen better displays of Picassos, but LOVE the ceramics and the restored beautiful museum building which is a wonderful landmark in Antibes. A really nice place to spend a few hours

So it was a bit of a trek for us - training from Cannes and hiking from Juan de Pins station and finding the museum. But wow, we felt like it was more than worth the effort especially since the weather was beautiful. The town of Antibes is a cute, European little town. The museum itself is beautiful and displayed... More

Having been to other museums exhibiting Picasso, this one was a little disappointing. There were few paintings but more sketches which I found less intetesting

Visited here on a day trip to Antibes. Interesting visit to museum very centrally located in centre of old town. Note to watch are the opening hours they close between 12-2 even in August high season with last visitors let in at 11.30 so plan your day wisely as we met lots being turned away at 11.30.am Outside location is...

As others have said, this is a delightful little museum with an impressive collection, note especially the rare ceramics. The location is also wonderful, a vista of the French Riviera coastline.
