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

The museum does not cost very much to go round. We learnt some things that we did not know before but if your time is short I would not bother. We did not use the audio guides so that might have been our mistake.

Excellent education on the life of Picasso. Inexpensive, well organised and a good place to go if you want to learn a bit more about this artist.

A small museum in the rooms where he was born with an additional display downstairs (when we were there of work by Ray Smith). We used the audio guides which were good. There is a venue further down the square which holds temporary exhibitions on a Picasso 'theme' - you can buy a joint ticket for this if you want.... More

It's worth going to see (1) the rooms where Picasso lived during early years of his life; and (2 ) the Statue outside the small museum/ building in the square. The negatives are that there is very little else of interest there. I found the limited sketches etc displayed, disappointing. No doubt I was spoilt by my visit to the... More

The Plaza de la Merced has a bronze statue of Pablo Picasso, across the street from the Picasso Birth House Museum. It shows Picasso seated on a marble bench with a notebook and a pencil in his hands. The statue was the work of the artist Francisco Lopez Hernandez and was inaugurated on Dec. 5, 2008. This is a favorite... More

We hoped to see more work by Picasso but there is currently a temporary exhibition by Ray Smith interpreting the work of Picasso until March. Nothing wrong with it but personally I would have preferred to see work by Picasso. Upstairs are a number of display cabinets in the rooms of the apartment which trace parts of Picasso’s early life.... More

The Native Home of the Picasso Foundation is the building where Picasso was born on Oct. 25, 1881. This small museum is quite interesting because it shows apartments showing what the house looked like at that time. The museum shows many items created by Picasso, one of the geniuses of the 20th century, who would revolutionize painting. This is a... More

Stopped here while in Malaga for the day. Price was 2 Euro to access the birthplace and included the audioguide. You can pay an additional 1 Euro to see the temporary exhibit which is Ray Smith until March 2014. We paid for access to the birthplace and skipped the temporary exhibit. We listened to the entire audioguide and spent a... More

We went late Sunday afternoon, which meant we got in for free. Did however have to pay 1 Euro for an audio guide. This is where Picasso was born and spent much of his early life, but despite the commentary and the displays it was very difficult to get any real feel for any of that. Too many display cabinets...
