Well organised, good value for money. Interesting selection of Picasso's early work, makes you want to study more about the painter and each period of his life. Very nice art shop. Avoid the queues by booking tickets online.

It's a joy to visit the PIcasso Museum to learn about his childhood, family and his genius. You will not be sorry that you found this gem in Barcelona. I chose to visit the museum on a day when our large family wedding party did the cooking class. I'm not big on cooking but I'm big on museums. I loved... More

Very interesting museum, tucked into the old town. Use either a detailed map or get a driver who knows where this place is. Very large collection of Picasso's work, including the classic period, the blue period, and what we think of Picasso today. We failed to purchase tickets on line and had to wait for nearly an hour to get... More

I am clearly lacking as I had no idea that Picasso was a child genius. Absolutely astonishing work that he painted at the age of 15 was a revelation. Be stunned by the classic, melodramatic Victorian paintings and then watch his progress into the blue period and on into cubism. Amazing!

It was amazing to see how he started and the influences on his art. Be sure to take the included Audio guide that will make the visit much more enjoyable. Buy tickets on line to bypass the lines.

A great collection of Picasso's works makes this a must see in Barcelona. A wide variety of works spanning all periods of the masters life for 11 euros. A good gift shop compliments the visit after viewing the many originals.

The Las Meninas portion of this museum is impressive. I found the rest of it a little lacking because as other reviewers stated, there are huge gaps in time that weren't represented at all. That being said, I'm from Ney York city and I have seen a lot of Picasso, in some of the best musuems in the world. I... More

I agree that this museum is not a comprehensive collection and there are huge gaps in his career that we found confusing to navigate. I also agree the recorded guide is silly and superficial, but my husband and I still found the museum absolutely delightful. There are wonderful pieces to enjoy in airy, well lit rooms. Despite crowds to get... More
