A museum dedicated mostly to Picasso; however, other artists do have their works here. The castle turned museum was once home to Picasso during his stays in town (visiting friends). Boasting a large collection of his works, this museum has 24 paintings, 44 drawings, 32 lithographs and various other mediums of art created by Picasso. Even though Picasso is not... More

I've heard many bad things about this museum but when a friend from London came to visit and it was a cloudy day, we ventured to Antibes and decided to visit the Picasso Museum. It's actually a lovely spot to spend 2 hours, the building is beautiful and the works and photos of Picasso are well worth the visit. True... More

Set in the very impressive Chateau Grimaldi with glorious views of the sea. Am not particularly a huge Picasso fan, but was pleased to see what was on display (even though in my head I was thinking "this man painted some crazy stuff!"). I was impressed with the display of ceramics, the two stone statues, and especially the collection of... More

The museum is architecturally lovely and has wonderful views of the sea from every window. Some of exhibits here I have never seen before and I especially loved the ceramics.

Particularly liked the sculptures outside in the courtyard, and of course the view over the Bay and Cap d'Antibes. Quite a lot of ceramics, which I really like, so possibly why the museum itself appealed to me. There was a De Stael exhibition on when we visited at the end of August, which was very impressive. For me, that was... More

I was more impressed by the "castle"(bit of a stretch) than the artwork inside. A quarter of the works is decent, the other three quarters are crap, basic, or both. Normal people will won't spend more than an hour in here. Not bad for €6 though.
