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.

We got lucky on the day we visited because it was a Sunday and we did not know that it is free when you get in line by 6:00 p.m. The museum houses his early works and sketches, it is worth visiting.

Though not a huge Picasso fan, I really appreciated the first few rooms that walked through his early life and work. I was disappointed that the curation didn't continue as thoroughly through his later years. All in all, I'm glad we went and would recommend for Picasso fans. But if you're on the fence because of a lengthy line or... More

We utterly enjoyed this tour through City Discovery. The guide, Marybeth, was exceptional. She knew a lot and we could tell she had passion about the subject. The museum is excellent. If you like Picasso, don't miss this one.

A must visit place for Picasso fans. Well curated, it chronicles the development of the prolific Spanish artist fromhis early days as a student to his years spent in France. Don't expect to see his major works but there are plenty of very good Picasso artwork to make it worth your while. Best of all, entrance is free on Saturdays... More

I was here as part of an education event, which included time in the museum. Love the way you can follow Picasso's work chronologically, and the paintings are well hung, so it doesn't feel crowded. The museum is in a beautiful building (see picture). It's small enough to to be manageable but big enough to feel you've seen a good... More

My husband and I stood in line for about 20-25 minutes around 3:00 p.m. on a weekday in November to get tickets. Just outside the ticket area is a display which shows how many tickets are available for each time slot, which was helpful in calculating availability. Since we are seniors our entrance fee was half the general one (7.50E... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Staff was very helpful when I couldn't download the tickets we had bought online. The collection is amazing as it presents the artist's life. It can get crowded so its worth it to buy tickets online in advance and "skip the line."

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.
