It was interesting to see the progression of Picasso's art. The museum outlines his growth from a child artist to an adult. It also explains where he was in life and how this effected his art. Quite interesting. Two things: 1. We showed up about 2 hours before closing and our tickets were free. Not sure why but I'm not... More

We enjoyed the tour through the Picasso Museum in Barcelona! Great museum of his earlier works! It was a fun and educational trip for us both.

I love how the museum takes you on a journey of the early life of Picasso. I just wish the staff didn't look at you like you where going to steal everything. You can't take photos and its such a pain. I love taking photos at art, I don't use a flash and I do it quickly. I don't see... More

First I should point out that this museum is free for students so that was a nice bonus. The museum really focuses on his early years and I was really surprised as his early work was very different than what I have come to know as typical Picasso pieces of art. I was incredibly surprised by how early his talent... More

This museum is hard to find but the buildings it is housed in are amazing. The staff are sour and unhelpful. We booked our tickets online but wanted an audio guide which had to be bought in a totally separate location to the place you collect audio guides and the signage was rubbish. The staff make you feel like a... More

We went to the museum after 3pm when it's free. You will save about €15 per adult. Stood in line for 45mn and then got a entrance ticket to go in to the museum which was scheduled for 30 minutes later. Museum was great and extensive. The shop is really nice an has tons of books!

We went on St Eulalia's Day, so it was free. Glad it was as otherwise I'd been so gutted about paying for this. Although I knew this was by no means a showcase of Picasso's best pieces, but rather about his early work, I was still very disappointed at the quality of the works displayed (except his Meninas version). I'm... More

This museum has an interesting collection, organizing the multiple Picasso's periods. I loved some of the works and the Blue room was simply perfect. Do not miss this museum.

Interesting to see picassos early work and how his style evolved to that in his well known works. Will say it is pricey but combine it with a visit to the gothic quarter and the museum of catalunya.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
