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!

My wife and I revisited the Picasso Foundation-Native Home Museum, where Picasso was born. What was very interesting were the old photographs. There was one that showed Picasso when he was 15 years old with his family. He seemed to be very good looking. His father was red-headed. Someone at the museum told me that when Picasso was older, his... More

A small museum in Picasso's birth home. We had the audio handsets and moved around the museum learning all about Picasso and his family. Really interesting (although my 12 year old found it boring!) a worthwhile visit.

While the Picasso Museum was certainly interesting and informative, this precious little museum in Picasso's birth home was much more inviting and much more "real" for us. This museum is not big by any means, yet we were amazed at how its contents moved us both. The Birthplace Museum offers a re-creation of a 19-century living-study which shows a painting... More
