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.

a different picasso museum than others we had been to. this started in his early years and if you are looking for his well known work, there is only a small collection of it here - but - it is such a great journey of his work - it is well worth it.

Picasso is by no means my favourite artist but we decided to tale advantage of the free Sunday tickets. The queue looked huge but we got to the front within 4t minutes and booked tickets for later on that day. The collection is interesting because it shows a real range within Picasso's own styles. Without knowing what to expect I... More

I'm not exactly an art connoisseur, so I don't have much knowledge of Picasso or his history. This museum gave me a great insight into his personal life, his history, and his style. It was particularly interesting to see how perfectly he could draw and paint at a young age, and then how he transitioned completely away from this to... More

You follow the historical progression of Picasso's art, which was interesring. I was sometimes a bit confused, though, there seemed to be some inexplicable leaps in time. I am not very into Picasso, but there also seemed to be periods of his which weren't presented at all. It might be because their collecrion is limited, but it's a bit confusing,... More

I love the Picasso museum because it feels like an old friend. I first visited in 1981 when it was small and quaint and actually felt like an exhibition inside a private house. The visitor could wander at will, backtrack and explore the building as well as the artwork. The area at the time was seedy and a bit scary.... More

It's a good price and great fun, especially if you have no appreciation for art and are just going for the humour! The contrast with las meninas and Picasso's interpretation is unbelievable. Drag the kids along, they're free! They will enjoy giggling at the naked bodies! Book in advance and don't even think of going on the free Sunday as... More

It was ok to go visit, students go free so that was great (just make sure you have your student ID!) However, it was a bit of a bore with earlier works, in my opinion not worth the trip, if you're already in the area you can check it out. Old works & no pictures allowed on the premises whatsoever.

The Museu Picasso is worth visiting to know more about Picasso… before he became Picasso. The collection includes paintings and drawings of a 15-16 year old Picasso, as well as some interesting works of the Blue & Pink Periods; the museum mostly covers Picasso’s work from 1895 to 1917; with the exception of Las Meninas, and Los Pichones series, there...

We got here early afternoon and were told there were no tickets available until 5.30pm. We were on a short visit so didn't want to waste time and went somewhere else.

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.
