It was fun to see where Picasso was born in opulent surroundings in Malaga. You will find that his accommodations were quite grand considering he lived there years ago. Unfortunately they wouldn't allow us to take any photos. Picasso's father was a great painter as well and we really enjoyed seeing his doves and pigeon works. His fathers name was... More

We enjoyed the displays of actual artifacts from Picasso's family and the rooms set up in period furniture. The other rooms were more art work. Too much! But, I'm glad we went while we were right there.

Such a lot to see and covering every period of his career.Close to the catherdral with plenty of nice bars and cafes nearby. My only regret is not purchasing the commemorative pack of Picasso tea - bags in the shop. A great oversight when it comes to naff souvenirs

This is a lovely attraction if you are in Malaga. Some fabulous works in a relatively intimate setting.. reasonably priced and a substantial discount if you are under 25 and have a student id. There is a good, free audio guide as you enter the museum. Also be sure to check out the roman ruin in the basement. The museum... More

We took a tour to this museum. This was donated by Picasso's family and it was interesting to know that he used to lived there when he was a child. The museum is pretty small but the art displayed was very lovely.

The queue was long but once inside there is no hurry. This museum is set in a historic building in the old city of Malaga. Beware of beggars outside . Once up the steps and into the cool air there great displays which inform you of Picassos bohemian lifestyle as well as an abundance of paintings ceramic etc. Security is... More

The house has some interesting minor paintings by both Picasso, and his father, who was inevitably doomed to live in his shadow. There's also plenty of biographical information on display, but really, the Museo Picasso is the essential sight to see in Malaga related to the artist. I'd say don't waste more than half an hour in the house, and... More

The place is not the recreation of the Picasso's home, when you get in it looks like a modern museum with some old items and paintings. It is also quite small, unless you are willing to read about each item you can finish in 10-15 min.

We visited expecting to see a reconstruction of Picasso's birth place. Instead it was an exhibition of photos and sketches in a few rooms. We found it quite boring. However if you are over 65, you get in for free. They require a passport as proof. The senior rate seems to change in Spain depending on which place you visit!... More
