We had a day visit to here whilst in Nice and popped in to the museum. excellent collection. Good introduction in English to Picasso and his involvement in the area. Some interesting pieces of work with good explanations. I really enjoyed the ceramics. Worth a visit.

Wondeful, as ever, to see some pieces I've mostly seen on posters etc. Lovely buildong (chateau) which lets the light in, in all the right places.

It is a very interesting place in Antibes. In addition to the work by Picasso, the museum also featuring the work from many other artists about the same time of Picasso. It looks like this is the time and place that Picasso transformed into the Picasso we mostly know today. One thing worth mentioning is the garden outside the museum... More

This museum has some nice pieces and some strange ones I have never seen before. It does not hold a candle to the one in Paris that is STILL under renovations. But will do when the other is not available.

The museum is great and you can see the beautiful paints of Picaso and other arts. I really recommend the visit in the Old Town of Antibes. The view is stuning!

due to the fact that you can see Picasso works frequently, we were particularly pleased to find a small but nice selection of Nicolas de Staël works .. the castle is situated in the old town of Antibes and offers a great view over the bay and the snow-topped Alpes from its outdoor terrace ..

Lovely building, not the greatest museum but an insinght into the artist's work. The town of Antibes however is wonderful, something for everyone if you like boats this is the place to go, one of the largest marinas in Europe. A great place to capture the light that draws so many artists to this gem on the Med

The views around here are stunning! We visited, but did not have enough time to visit the museum itself. There are wonderful places to eat around here, and a fantastic fresh food market as well. Note the market closes a little early, so make sure to get there on time. I have visited Rome, but the best gelato I have... More

It is not all Picasso and the building itself is lovely. Worth a visit if you have time, but an hour is probably long enough.

The building itself is beautiful. Decent collection of Picasso works. Works by other artists are a mixed bag. Interpretation of the art could be better. A nice way to spend an hour if you have it, but strolling around beautiful Antibes may be more enjoyable.
