The museum is not really big but it is entirely dedicated to the artistic life of Picasso. It walks you through the different professional stages Picasso went through from the beginning of his career. The first room starts with his first paintings when he was only 13 years old. The museum has a lot of posts with explanation of Picasso’s... More

Picasso's early work shows what a skilful artist he truly was. It is easy to consider only his later work which for some people lacks what traditionalists might admire. The museum is popular so we had to queue but with nearby buskers to entertain us the 45 minute waut soon passed. There is a gift shop here and lavatories.

There is a fantastic extensive collection of works spanning Picasso’s lifetime on display, especially those from his earlier years. His prolific works utilise diverse mediums from drawings, paintings and prints to ceramic works. The buildings the art works are housed in themselves are worth the visit and a beautiful setting to display this vast collection. The museum provides a wonderful... More

We absolutely adored the Picasso Museum. Seeing this genius artist"s early work blew us away. Who knew that at age 15 he created such magnificence. We found it fascinating to follow his work from adolescence on through his rose and blue period. So much to see and absorb. Arrive early (get advance skip the line tickets) and spend as much... More

I thought it would the highlight of our stay in Barcelona but I never was so disappointed and angry. I was in Barcelona with a group of students and their attitude was from the beginning hostile as if we were the enemy. When an adult was using a mobile and was talking loud, no problem. When a student wanted to... More

A big disappointment. There is some good examples from Picasso's early years but it peters out after that with very limited examples of his later works. If you are a fine arts student you may love it but anyone else will wonder what the fuss is.

This was a really good museum, featuring artworks from Picasso's teenage years to later life. You'll see his various styles, such as his 'blue period'. Audio guides were very good. Under 25s get a discount, and university students get in for free! (I used ISIC card). Worth a visit, though you may have to queue outside if you don't book... More

Thanks to the free entrance on the first Sunday of the month we got to explore this wonderful museum that would be worth the detour just for the building. As an art enthusiast it was wonderful to see Picasso's early works but there is a large gap in the collection from 1905 to 1917 and the artworks are not as... More

Thousands of Picasso's works Under one roof. Nice information panels in multiple languages describing the art and phases of Picasso's life. Entry line is ridiculous ! Cannot buy tickets online day of visit - must purchase day before visit. Highly recommend buying ticket online to avoid line
