We had a good time at the Picasso museum (try to go on a free night if you can) but overall were disappointed. The museum focused primarily on Picasso's early and later life. It was fascinating to see his evolution, but there were large gaps in the timeline that made it hard to follow the progression through his life. Worth... More

We went on Sunday when it is free in the afternoon. Take care of your valuable items. Be prepared to queue and do not be intimidated by the long line as it would be moving quick enough for you to enjoy the museum.

We were lucky to visit Barcelona in non busy duration (December near Christmas). when we tried to buy tickets by internet we saw that tickets were available only three months from now (highly unlikely to visit). Nevertheless, we walked from our hotel through the Les Rambles Ave. and surprise, surprise, no busy line, nor overcrowded. The visit in this museum... More

The exhibits here show the evolution of the genius of Picasso from an eleven year old producing some marvellous potraits and landscapes through to his later flowering. The series of Velaques copies is worth the visit on their own. The museum publicity is very understated and you could be tempted to give it a miss - don't. You can combine... More

If abstract art is what you are looking for- this is not the place. Picasso was a supremely talented artist- even as a child. Seeing this early work is very interesting compared with how his style evolved. I'm sure having a guide made a difference- much better than my going it alone, as she added so much information. If you... More

What a treat to see Picasso's beginnings, then to see his art evolving into the style he later became known for. The building in which the museum is housed is equally interesting - old and new so elegantly combined - definitely worth a visit

The majority of the work is from his early period. Some of his later works are also displayed. It gives a wonderful history of his early years, and also includes other mediums he used.

As someone who doesn't major in arts or without much knowledge on the subject, the museum was still a nice place to visit. The exhibit of Duncan's photos on Picasso's daily life were simply unpretentious, showing the artist as himself and no less. The quantity of painting in the museum can be overwhelming so maybe leaving the entire afternoon instead... More
