Great visit to the birthplace of the city's most loved artist. €3 gets you the combined ticket to the special exhibition which I totally recommend. Both tours comes with a free audio guide that's informative and very enjoyable. To be able to see how the young Picasso lived and where he developed his passion for the art! As a sceptic... More

Interiors, diverse materials, photographs and Pablo's first figurative paintings were guided by English speaking recording which you could hire from the desk.

A little gallery is included in the ticket, but you get a look at the house where Picasso was born. A few momento's of his life there and a good bit of history about his early life and influences. So from that perspective it is well worth it.

You often find that cities with one major celebrity born there make much of little. Unfortunately, this is a case in point. Sure, he was born in the house but other than one or two items there is nothing left of the original home. Quite a lot of 'this is what it probably looked like'. Spend longer in the actual... More

This place is for the hardcore Picasso fan. Inside there is little left, most is in relation to the picasso family. There are no works of art from the artist here except the copies in the shop.

It's cool to see, but for the 3 Euro you pay to go inside, you see a small room with a table and some chairs. The gift shop is weak compared to the places all over the city. There is a statue of Picasso outside on a bench that you can take pictures with. It's right in the center of... More

We expected to see some of the masterpieces painted by Picasso but were let down severely. It was his birth place apparently but the artwork was not Picasso's and very ordinary.

This little museum shows how Picasso lived his life of 91 years. You can see little soldiers he played with as a kid as well as his baptizm document stating he was legitimate! You learn about the influence of his father on him by infusing his love of painting, bull fighting, flamenco and peiogons. That is why Pablo named her... More

We made a mistake and thought this was a Picasso Museum. Well - it's not really - just his birth home, with artwork from others inspired by Picasso. It was nice to see how he used to live but really a bit boring. Audio handsets were useful but really would give this a miss - sorry!
