I was surprised by how nice this museum was. The audio guide was perfect. I was not very familiar with Picasso except for he name. Learned a lot about him and gained an appreciation for why he was about. Definitely worth a visit. Wish there was more to see, but for starters, it was pretty good.

Considering Picasso is one of the most prolific artists ever you dont get to see much of his work. What you do get to see is a lot of work from when he was a teenager and other works from his very early career, Most of the pictures are not abstract or cubist and probably surprise a lot of guests....

It was wonderful to see the paintings Picasso created from early childhood to later in life. I wish there had been more of the Blue and Rose periods but everything in the museum was wonderful

Great exposition! Shows how he developed and changed with age. I would definitely buy your tickets online to avoid the massive line to get in.

It was amazing to see the remarkable talent Picasso had from such a young age. The museum covers his early years as an artist, and his development into his mastery. A beautiful, simple museum, well organized and described. A joy to visit.

I've heard some people saying they were not great fans of Picasso until they've visited this museum. And after visiting this place, you understand why. Here you can see some of his earliest works, especially portraits, which show that he was really special. There is also an excellent collection of his work in ceramics. To avoid crowds and waiting in... More

This museum, buried in the heart of old Barcelona, is gorgeous. The permanent collection includes an eye-opening display of Picasso's young work, and it is amazing to see his classical technique. The museum is set up chronologically; however, there are gaping holes. There is no Cubisim, no collage, just a big skip from Rose period up to the 1950's. I... More

The museum is located near La Rambla but down a side street but it was sign posted so not too difficult to find. Travellers should bear in mind that they may need to have a spare 1Euro coin if you have a rucksack since you will need to store it in a locker which you need a 1euro coin for... More

I wasn't exactly a Picasso fan until I visited this museum and now I really appreciate his life and skills as an artist. This wonderful museum if full of interesting information and examples of work from Picasso's life. Great to see his talent as a classical painter and view work from his blue and rose period.
