Not a Picasso fan, but this visit was included on a larger tour of Spain. While I was not an Abstract art enthusiast when I left, I definitely understood Picasso's perspective more and learned A LOT about how he approached his art. It made much more sense after some education. The museum was beautiful, as was Malaga. Also of interest... More

As other reviewers have pointed out the art is not perhaps reflective of his greatest work, but none the less this was very interesting and would definitely recommend taking one of the free commentary headphones as this gave a good insight and was informative.

It was really interesting to see the home of little Picasso. The artifacts and drawings that are displayed are a great look into his life. It was a lot smaller than I expected (the museum), but than again it was a 1 floor apartment so I should have expected that. This is definitely worth a visit (especially if you love... More

Not an art enthusiast but found this really interesting. The development of Picasso's work over the years was really interesting.

The gallery itself is in an historic palace under which excavations found Roman ruins, which in turn are on display. The best part of the Picasso exhibition was the extraordinary video on loop which went for around 90 minutes, and was so informative, we were riveted to our seats! I cannot recommend it more highly. The exhibited items though relatively... More

Went with a group of 15 students aged 17 and the guide was superb. Her command of the language geared towards the audience was great and she was very knowledgeable about everything picasso. We finished off with a painting/collage workshop to put into practice what we had learned about cubism, well done!!!

The works collected here provide a much broader overview of Picasso's career than in Barcelona ranging from early to late periods. The works are arranged by theme, an unusual but effective approach. Films in side rooms are very interesting.

The Picasso museum, according to Andre Malraux's quote, certainly does this. And if Picasso appears tp tackle the same painting several times, by his own admission, he is seeking spontaneity and not closure. While some of his "hommages" to women may initially appear to smack of the residual effects of shabby plastic surgery and "missed" silicon injections so prevalent in... More

With my map in hand, a started walking, searching for this wonderful museum. I got very good directions at the Roman ruins and found the very unextraordinary building easily. Be sure to look up at the ceiling in the lobby. And bring extra money for the enchanting gift shop. And, well, be prepared to fall in love with Picasso if... More

The Pablo Ruiz Picasso Foundation is based in Malaga and has the sole objective of promoting the work of the artist Pablo Picasso. They are headquartered in his birthplace home and, for an hour, it’s an interesting and professional journey through the artist’s life. The audio tour is a little lengthy but still worth listening to because it provides a... More
