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

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.

Musee Picasso is a very pleasant way to pass an hour or two. The space itself is very airy and bright, with a lovely sculpture terrace that has beautiful views over the Med and Antibes itself. Art buffs will be particularly interested in the ceramics by Picasso, which are very rare. Very interesting to see how he worked motifs of... More

Enjoyable way to spend an hour or two. Located in the center of the old town on the water the Musee Picasso features an exhibit by Nicholas de Stael on the lower floors and Picasso on the top. It presented both artists well and provided an insightful look on their lives and work. My only complaint was that explanations of... More

Museum is based in a lovely chateau Grimaldi, overlooking the sea. The bottom bit was dedicated to Nicolas de Stael, a very interesting exhibition of an artist who committed suicide in the town of Antibes. the top floor is all about Picasso, ranging from photographs taken of him while at work, to lots of still lives and nudes he painted...

It was small and easy to take in. It is next to the old city and had a wonderful collection of Picasso's work.

A very well kept museum telling the story of Picasso's time in Antibes and how he worked in the studio. Also a little bit of modern art in general and some other artists of the same category and time as Picasso. Picasso's short stay in Antibes and his time at the Riviera was not the most well-known, so those looking... More
