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.

Very nice museum in a great building in the heart of Barcelona. Good selection of paintings and a nice merchandising store too. I would highly recommend the BCN artticket. You can buy it online and pick it up for 28 Euros. It includes 6 museums and you can skip the waiting line which is awesome! We bought it to see... More

This museum is a must for Picasso lovers and art enthusiasts. The layout of the museum is very simple and goes in chronological order, form Picasso's early years as a classically trained painter to his avant-garde style and innovative technique that brought him fame. However toward the end of the museum the layout became a bit confusing. Though this museum... More

Before I went there I read the reviews here and doubted if it was worth my money, still I went. I liked it a lot. I appreciated every piece and Picasso's evolution through time. Also Dali's parallel work. Nice!

We booked advance tickets for 9:00 AM at the Picasso Museum. We had got to the museum as it opened and we were happily ushered right in. Housed in a complex of five medieval mansions, the Picasso Museum is very accessible and well laid-out. We made good use of the excellent audio guides and moved slowly through the large collection...

We visited the museum on a weekend in Barcelona The curation of the museum is slightly odd at times and doesn't flow naturally however you can very clearly see the development of Picasso. Despite the lack of recognisable works there are a lot of great paintings and I really enjoyed the museum. Do watch out for the people on the... More

To Art and architecture lovers. It's Picasso museum! we could enjoy a coupled exhibit with Dali, and it's been fantastic. The building and the area are also worth it. Book tickets online before going, and make sure to be on time or you will be stuck in lines for ever. You may need at least 1hour to fully appreciate the... More

The queues move quickly along the narrow side street and once inside the galleries cover the development of Picasso's style. Our visit included the current Picasso/Gaudi exhibition which covered their friendship and style development; this was also well presented and offered great insight into the artists.

i am not a big museum person but worth spending an hour or two here and viewing many of Picasso's early works including charcoal drawings, and small works...It is a good history of Picasso and how is art progressed through the years also where he lived and who he studied under. Glad we took the time to go!

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.
