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.

If you are into beautiful arabic-style architecture and great modernist paintings this is the place for you. Take your time and go well rested as you would like to walk in this beautiful museum and spend your time looking at the great art collection housed here.

Enjoy Picasso's formative years and his relationship with Barcelona. I was fortunate to see his unique sugar aquatints. Highlights include the blue period and his Las Meninas visions after Velazquez. Make sure to get your tickets in advance as the line-up is one to get you a ticket with the time to come back! Great facilities for storing your bags... More

If you are really into picasso and art then it makes sense to visit. If it is a stop by only then skip it won't relate and u won't feel anything about the visit.

Great if you thoroughly love Picasso. Once is enough and doubt we would return in the future. Have visited the Picasso museum in Antibes and have returned 2-3 times. Definitely it was hard to find but great part of our day visiting Las Ramblas and gothic area. Would describe it as a gorgeous building but more of a small museum.

Excellent museum charting the life and works of Pablo Picasso. We found that his early work was some of the best he produced, but some of his later work is more famous.

Curated very well with good vision of how Picasso's work progressed. Some of the audio tour explanations were a little long, but it was a good exhibit. It isn't the most extensive collection since his work is all over the world (the largest collection may be in LA actually), but given the space (which is also very interesting) it is... More

Was there for the Dali/Picasso exhibit. Absolutely amazing. The museum is very well organized with a nice walk-through of the evolution of their careers.

This was an unexpected surprise just around the corner from our hotel ,The Grand Central. The museum had been beautifully restored and included many wonderful artworks from Picasso and other noted artists.The gift shop had interesting items to use as collectibles or gifts and there was nothing tacky that detracted from the experience. Well worth a visit.

Reminder: buy tickets in advance! Then enjoy! You don't need 3 hours here, unless you're a full on Picasso lover, but if you're here to enjoy the paintings, learn some history, you can do the museum m in 90-120 minutes. It was busy (August) but not so busy inside that you are packed and dislike the attractions themselves. Recommended on... More

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.
