I'll start with saying we didn't pay, there's free admission on Thursdays after 7 PM and we decided to go. So one of the pluses is that there is free admission once a week and I think once a month of Sunday as well. The building is beautiful and the admission is well organized, you can talk audio guidance for... More

A beautiful collection in a beautiful space. Such a delight to see the early work and the Las Meninas room is spectacular--a large space devoted to many, many studies that Picasso did of Velazquez's masterpiece, Las Meninas. So glad we went!

What we like here was the amount of artwork from the early years of Picasso's work, things that he produced as a teenager. Then we were able to see how his style changed over his life. A shame that many of his major works were not represented in the museum, but there's the cost to consider. However, some reproductions of... More

The gift shop has more Picasso on view than the collection and it's free. The collection is stunning, but a very small part of the museum's holdings and they have lots of blank walls. Pity.

We also took the audio set, and so we could follow easily the transformation of the artist. It was fascinating to see the sophisticated paintings reflecting emotions the artist made when 14 years old. Each room presented a different phase of the artists life. It was a small museum, but a satisfying experience. Later in the week we visited Malaga... More

Great museum with lots of works by Picasso, particularly from his early days. You have to put any bags in lockers before entering and the order of the collection can be a tad confusing if you don't check the map a lot but there is a wealth of some incredible art and very interesting information about his life and career.

Enjoyed this museum. They had a photo exhibit of Picasso in his studio. I learned that to make great art you have to do it in your underwear. It was fun to see so much of his work in one location. We enjoyed the museum.

Great collection of Picasso's work (whilst incomplete) - unfortunately the architecture/interior design could have been done better. The museum is located in a gorgeous building and the designers clearly did not make use of the beauty of the existing architecture. Nonetheless a must see - I learnt a lot about his work in his early years and a temporary photography... More

The Picasso collection focused on his early years and shows the progression of styles. The works done in his mid teens were brilliant, and there were enough of the later works to keep all happy. The Museo is in the old quarter and you'll enjoy walking in this area.

Great with lots of rooms! Free after 3 on Sunday's but free for students and €7 for people under 25 every day. Audio guide was €5 and was helpful for the earlier years of Picasso not so much for the later paintings
