Being in Antibes and seeing the Picasso Museum we thought that we must visit. The setting is fantastic in the old castle but it must just be me. I don't get this modern art thing. Not much that was on view makes any sense to me, simply!

Good if you are an art lover. My wife didn't like that she couldn't take pictures inside though. Worth a look through and good view on the terrace outside...where you can take pictures...

A delightful small museum tucked away near the rampart of the old town at Antibes Enjoy the intimate atmosphere, and appreciate Picasso (who I find a tad derivative..shh!) in a context that does justice to his vision and love of this area

This museum couldn't be in a more stunning location. I think it's a must visit when in Antibes. There are translations in English explaining the art work, which is really helpful for us sad non-French speakers. I thought the museum would be a bit larger, but it was sufficient. I think setting aside an hour is a good amount of... More

I have to make a disclaimer: I am not a Picasso fan and believe he was more of a showman than a great artist. Having said that, the museum has a very limited collection of Picasso's works from his brief stay in Antibes. The ceramics are the most interesting. I even liked some of them. The building which houses the... More

Most museums in France are closed Tuesday. This museum is an exception; closed Monday. I called Monday morning and asked if they were open and was told they were - not. No signage anywhere and people waiting outside. Finally used a handicap call box and was told they were closed until Tuesday morning. Parking is somewhat distant and pricey; 2.60eu... More

On the sea... In brilliant sunshine... A beautiful building filled with early Picasso. This is a small museum but truly lovely with sea breezes blowing through the windows and views of the Mediterranean. A short walk from the market and in the middle of many places to eat or have a coffee. I'm not a Picasso fan but I loved... More

Although there were a few interesting works and photos in this museum, it was overall unimpressive. Perhaps for more of the Picasso "history buff," we didn't find any quintessential Picasso pieces there. Not a lot of descriptions in English, and they don't even provide any sort of map to visitors. The building itself is perhaps one of the most interesting... More

The Picasso Museum in Antibes has a good collection of the great man’s works, as well as a number of other painters of the same genre. But do note the opening times: they have the very annoying habit of a lot of shops and attractions in Southern Europe by closing from 12 noon to 1400, and do not open before... More
