Worthwhile visit , stunning location. Make sure you watch the DVD of the photographer who lived with Picasso and documented his work. Wonderful insights

As a person who has visited many museums yes this is definitely interesting and not just another museum... But if you are not seriously into arts and/or have limited time; consider to spare your time for other to-dos at Antibes...

The building was pretty nice, maybe more impressive than the paintings. There were a lot of sketches and photos with Picasso's story ,so I guess it would be nicer for someone with refined interest in history of art.

Nice museum, not too large or expensive (eg. good with kids). Wheelchair access to the museum. Nice view over the bay from the city wall (go through the Museum).

I do agree somewhat with the negative reviewers in that if you aren't a Picasso fan, you might not get much out of the artwork. There are other artists' work represented here, as well. What I enjoyed most inside was the photography exhibit, showing scenes from his life while living in the building. The building itself and the views from... More

I think it's the most popular place to visit in Antibes. I also think it's worth visiting even if you are not the biggest Picasso fan. Unfortunately part of the museum was close for visitors because of exhibition change. It's fobidden to take photos in museum but there is really beautiful terrace with amazing view where you can take pistures.

To be fair I should say that I am not a big Picasso fan. But I still wanted to see this collection while on a day trip to Antibes ( probably bc of TA reviews:)). I should say that one should be really in love with all his works to find this collection interesting. Since his most famous paintings are... More

Located close to the sea in an old building, the Picasso museum in Antibes is an interesting mixture of old and modern. Includes many sketches of Picasso and some interesting paintings of the famous artist. The way there is also spectacular with direct view over the sea.

This is a wonderful cultural excursion in Antibes and well worth the detour. Not only is the facility a beautiful old castle on the defence ramparts of the city, but the building has also been updated to include modern design chic. The artwork is Picasso and others including lovely sculptures on the terrace and Picasso's amazing porcelain collection... Great visit...
