We got an audio tour and tickets for the special exhibition so spent a few hours here. There's a lot to see and I wished I could have gone for a coffee and a sit down after the first hour to rest my bones and have a sit down chat about what we had seen. I have the feeling that... More

Everyone knows Pablo Picasso. It is not easy to find this museum. The museum is quite small, and it is located at some very dodgy streets. It shocked us when we found the entrance at some weird small streets. Buy your tickets at the spot. It's free for students. Get your audio guide for just 5 euros. They have lockers... More

We spent an hour or so at the Picasso Museum and could probabæy have spent more. The museum apparently covers mostly Picasso's early work from the 1890's - when he was indeed quite young, and up until til 1900's with a jump to the 1915-20 periode and again a jump to his lage life with a large suite of 40+...

Got to know alot of new details about picasso and his early years, You must take a guided tour to understand the meaning of the paintings, La Meninas and all drafts at the end are like a whipped cream on cake

We appreciated the very early works, but unfortunately, the collection is unable to build on that. For those unfamiliar with his work, they might well wonder what all the later fuss was about. This museum needs a serious influx of major works to justify it's name.

Go in the late afternoon to see this attraction. It's not full of school trips or toursits and you really can appricate his work so much more. Lots to see, and you really get an insight into picasso's mind and lifestyle. Deadicate afew hours to this, there is a great flamenco bar down the road which kicks of at 7.30,... More

I appreciate art and love Picasso but I was sadly un impressed with this museum. All of his good work are at The Louvre so if you've been there don't be thrilled about what you'll see here.

The Picasso museum houses an amazing collection of Picasso's early works which gives incredible insight to the depth of his talent. It is there to be savoured. Unfortunately it is staffed by unfriendly, over officious and unsympathetic gallery staff who make the journey around the gallery a sanction rather than a pleasure.

I appreciate that I am possibly a heathen but I really did not enjoy the museum. Beautiful building, clean and fresh, toilets available, bookshop etc but the exhibits left me cold. More information about his life might have been helpful though there were signs to read they were a bit sterile. I much preferred his early work at 14 in... More
