The Museu Picasso in Barcelona is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the 4,251 works that make up the permanent collection. Furthermore, the Museu Picasso, opened in 1963, also reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate, solid relationship that was shaped in his adolescence and youth, and continued until his death. The Museum is very rich in regard to work from the formative years in the life of the artist; it is practically exhaustive up to the Blue Period. The Museum also houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series Las Meninas (1957) as well as a comprehensive print collection.

The line was really long so we were glad we bought our tickets on line. The layout is easy to follow and displays Picasso works from his early years through and including some of his contemporary work. No photos.

Great to see the works of Picasso through his life. Collections are segregated during period years so you get to see his work evolve through time. The museum is quite busy so it is best to arrive early or buy your ticket for a later time and come back. All in all the whole family enjoyed the experience.

Even if you are not a big fan of Picasso, it's absolutely worth a visit. The museum is well organized and allows the visitor to understand his evolution through his different phases. Especially interesting is the Meninas room, with all the experimentation he did over Velázquez's work. I was lucky there wasn't much people visiting at 18h. I recommend to... More

Great account of Picasso's early development as an artist. Interesting how he interpreted the works of previous masters like Velasquez

I wasn't a huge Picasso fan or that interested in Cubism though after spending a couple hours in this beautiful setting and viewing Picasso's evolution as an artist gained a better understanding and appreciation of his talents. Worth the time and money.

Very clean, nice layout, and a perfect location to house Picasso's works. The architecture of this museum along was worth seeing!

this is the must-visited place to taste barca city especially while most of Gaudi works is at their maintenance time. my daddy found the direction and walked me here. it might be the only museum where you can find many initial sketches of his early works. we finally left with lots of postcards & souvenir items.

We were fortunate enough to visit the museum yesterday and it was a welcomed break from the heat! We were there around 2:00 and there was not a line and we walked right in. A great display of Picasso work over four floor with the top floor having other artists. There was nothing from his "blue period" but certainly enough... More

Loved this! I'm a big fan of Picasso work and it was neat to see the variations in his style through the years. Really felt like I understood him more as an artist after this.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
