A must see

I really have enjoyed it, while many tourist often go to St Paul for art this museum has a lot to offer and there are several galleries nearby such as the Gallerie le Cameleon

The gift shop was the best part of this museum. Lovely building but a really boring collection of sketches. Disappointing.

The museum is a must see, not only for the unique content, but for the beautiful views across the Mediterranean.

I was really pleased to see works by Picasso in the place in which they were created. We see several series of works where he explores certain ideas: sea urchins and female figures in particular. I suspect that people who really know Picasso's work will find this very interesting, I was glad that some quite detailed explanation was given, in... More

The Picasso museum of Antibes is basic for understanding the art of Picasso and other great artists of the early 20th century. excellently framed by the environment - the sea - the cathedral - the old city.

Half of the musee is dedicated to a different artist. Some Picasso drawings and paintings that are surely not well known. A lot of experimentation with sea urchins. The best of the musee is the view of the terrace overlooking the bay and with view on the half island Cap d' Antibes

This is a great museum in France. You get to see some of Picasso's work and the areas around the Museum are great to check out as well. Instagram: @tommiesox

We visited this museum on a rainy day in Antibes, and unfortunately felt that we wasted our money. The entrance lobby was chaotic as there were so many students milling around. Admission was 6 euros per person. I guess we were expecting something pretty amazing, but most of the exhibits were childlike and uninteresting. The display covers a short period... More
