The new Picasso museum deserves to be visited. Nice building, from the ground up to the third floor where the woodwork can be seen. Art collection well enhanced. Two hours there, time has flown... We strongly recommend the visit.

Would highly recommend this museum. Many works and changing displays. Affordable entry charges for young and old. Expand your mind a little in a beautiful building.

The building and the balcony were my favorite parts of the museum. They are beautifully located on the coast and the terrace has some fantastic sculptures. In the winter, the museum is free as the 2nd floor is closed. Half of the museum was not Picasso paintings (but still worthwhile to see). As with many artist-specific museums, most of their... More

A great way to learn about the progression of Picasso's art and that of one of his contemporaries. It piqued my interest to learn more. The museum is in the former Grimaldi castle, right on the oceanfront in Le Vieux Antibes. I would have like to take some photographs (without flash) but unlike other museums, no photography is allowed whatsoever.

The museum is in the delightful old town of Antibes with a wonderful setting overlooking the sea.The grounds have a selection of interesting sculptures,including a Miro.There was an exhibition of paintings by Le Corbusier which made an interesting contrast to the Picassos.Excellent collection of his ceramics showing his all round creative genius

I love this museum because I love the works of Picasso. The place is small enough to see his works in details and to spend few hours doing so. I also love the view from its terrace.

We visited the French Riviera in Dec 2015 along with my family and spent a good portion of the day at Antibes - As part of Antibes, the Picasso museum was well worth the time. We started the walk around Anitbes and visited many sites including the Picasso museum. The Museum itself is located in Chateau Grimaldi and the building... More

This is now my favorite of all art museums, nudging the Getty Malibu. It is a small collection, easy to see in a few hours. Admission is cheap. We visited in January, arriving just as they opened. Almost no crowd at all save a group of school kids

Building amazing as are views. Collection is mostly work done while staying nearby, so not so exciting as other museums with his collections. Was not a first rate collection of Picassos.
