Picasso's earlier works are featured here in an astounding setting. This will be an art museum experience you will not easily forget. If you can see Velazquez Las Meninas at the Prado in Madrid beforehand that would add extra excitement to your visit.

Although i am not an art historian and do not know much about art, this museum was excellent. the exhibits follows Picasso's work from age 13 until his death. I found it worthwhile to upgrade to get the audio package as if you just read the titles on the paintings you may miss a lot of Picasso's story. Allow for... More

Lovely museum and a must for any visit to Barcelona. Recent exhibit featured a photographic exhibit taken of Picasso and his wife in their home. Sunday afternoons the lines will be long as admission is free. I believe this might be the first Sunday of every month.

Learned a lot here, and the museum conforms to my expectation. Content to see many his works and most thing you want to know is in it!

From Picasso's classical training through his imitation and impressionistic periods and into his cubist self, you can see the step-by-step development of one of the great modern artists. Absolutely Fantastic! Highly Recommended!

In the museum you can observe the early life and old paintings of the genius painter. There are many samples from his early works. These classical paintings show his extraordinary talent and his voyage in creating a new movement. First signs and samples of the cubist movement are very impressive.

This museum was full to the brim of Picasso's work. The wonderful thing is that the museum is laid out chronologically, so that you see the early works and the move on into his works later in life. Basically if you're interested in art or a fantastic life story, this museum is for you!

This museum was definitely the highlight of my two trips to Barcelona. Seeing all the Gaudi attractions was inevitable, and they are everything you'd expect; but the Picasso museum, hidden away in the Barri Gotic is an unexpected jewel. The collection is beautifully displayed. It takes Picasso from his teenage years, when he was so prolific he painted on anything... More

one of the greatest exhibitions I ever seen! I love Picasso, and selection of his works was fascinating. Definitely worth visiting. Allow plenty of time, as selection is really great. Plus we were able to use student discount too (as long as you have a student card)

The museum itself is in a neat location, in the Gothic district in a beautiful building, which adds to the experience. We enjoyed the museum - it took us through Picasso's life showcasing his different works. Not having much experience with or knowledge of Picasso, the audio guide was extremely helpful for us. It was a great complement to other... More
