The entrance is free for students(take your ID card.) There are many works of Picasso(paintings, sculptures.) It is prohibited to take pictures in the museum. If you can buy tickets online, do it. The queue is quite long.

The title says it all. While I'm not a big fan of Picasso's work the museum was worth a look. If you have the Articket pass you can skip the line and go right in which is a plus as there was a line the day we visited. You can also buy tickets online from the museums website.Getting to the... More

This small but very well layed out museum connects Picasso with his time in Barcelona...and other areas of Spain...it was very interesting to see his progression from his works as a very young man then the changes that came with his experience and aging. I look forward to seeing his other museum in Paris one day soon.

There is exactly two purely Cubist paintings in the collection, so don't expect to see the Picasso of your college art appreciation class. You do get to see the artists evolution from youth and formal training in art through Impressionism and toward his mature work. The highlight is the 1957 Las Maninas, the artist's Cubist reinterpretation Las Meninas by Diego... More

Set in a lovely building this museum has Picasso's works painted as a teenager and young man when he lived in Barcelona and then his works nearer the end of his life when he returned. Few pieces from his time in Paris etc so don't quite see the progression he made from traditional to wacky but very interesting anyway. Entrance... More

I must start by saying that I loves me an audio guide. This museum actually has quite a bit of readings on the wall in Spanish, Catalan and English, but I really think the audio guide is necessary. The information is fascinating, and you really get a good sense of Picasso's life, especially early on. I've been to several Picasso... More

I guess it would be quite a loss not to see such an interesting transition in Picasso's life by visiting this place. We went there on Sunday because it was free after 3 pm till 7 pm. There was a long line but still we did wait for a long time. It was worth waiting. Inside there is air conditioning... More

The museum is actually off a side street so make sure you REALLY know how to get there ! We bought our tickets online so didn't have to deal with lines to get in - the museum is busy but that's no surprise. I'm not an art lover but I enjoyed the museum. I enjoyed the early work the most... More

The museum focuses on Picasso's work starting when he we a young teen. The exhibit leads you through his evolution as a painter and provides opportunities to understand the influence of other great artists on his work. The physical space in which the work is displayed is quire wonderful. Be sure to buy tickets in advance so you can skip... More

Museum shows how Picasso evolved from a very competent traditional painter into an impressionist style, finally developing into an abstract cubist painter which he is best known for. Includes some paper practice drawings he did before the final paintings. T LOLhe museum lacks his middle period when the cubist form developed, and it does jump abruptly to his later period.... More
