“It contains all the life of Picasso!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014 NEW

Although you don't find inside his major masterpiece, the musuem is really interesting as it runs through all the life of the painters: from its first pieces of work and inspirations, to the cubism and his last period. If you are fond of such artist, this is definitely the place you must to visit.

“Mainly secondary collection with few works”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 NEW

Don't get me wrong with the Picasso museum in Paris currently closed this is probably the best place to exclusive see Picasso works. However, I have to say there weren't that many works to see and with the exception of a few, they were quite b grade. Would give it a miss and go to Paris (when it re-opens). The one major annoyance i do have to mention though was not being allowed to take in a bottle of water into the exhibition, but having to check it in, nowhere else have I seen this occur.

“Not enough artworks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 NEW

We were disappointed with the number and range of Picasso works on display. If you are a Picasso fan and in Barcelona, then that is the Picasso museum to see!

“Beautiful! Very inspiring.”

Loved the picasso collection. Amazing. Dont buy the combined ticket, which enables you to see other exhibitions, its not worth it.

“Great museum and educational opportunity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 NEW

Our tour guide really made the experience meaningful. Aside from very abstract art (view both the profile and head-on in one picture, at one time!), there was much more the art told the visitor. Picasso lived to 90 or there abouts and had a philosophy that happiness and longevity resulted from changing one's partner every 5 years, which he hearilty practiced himself. When he was in love, the women in his portraits were recognizable and their smiles were pleasant. When he wasn't in love anymore, they took on a frightening appearance, with sharp teeth lining what the experts call the core of a woman.

Olga was one of his favorite women; she was a Russian. She is depicted many times in his art here and can be recognized by her long, dark hair. Another favorite woman of Picasso's is a lovely blond woman and observe how her depictions changed over time.

Before the modern art cubist development of Picasso's work, he was an extremely accomplished realistic artist. Some of his realistic pieces hang here in this mseum. There is a picture of his sister, young and holding a doll (suggestive of her role as a mother in the future), and a picture of his father (who was always critical of his art). He also has paintings of his young son with an expression that does not change from portrait to portrait.

It is worthwhile visit, especially for a little trip from Torremolinos.
