Had a timed entry for the "Masterpieces" exhibition at the Picasso Museum but was allowed in early. The museum was not too crowded, which was a clue to the quality of the exhibition. It was all right but paled in comparison to the current "Picasso...More

As an art novice, the audio guide is my first go to for help. Touring this museum I was struck with the complexity of understanding his works. First to see the influence of others as he deconstructed his paintings, then to understand how time, politics,...More

We always go to the Picasso when we are in Paris, but it wasn't as good as usual, as many of the wonderful paintings are in the Picasso exhibit at the Musee d'Orsay. But I'm reviewing the tiny restaurant -- we had lunch on the...More

I think the Picasso Museum is absolutely wonderful. The museum also has the art Picasso collected which is a very interesting selection. There are always special exhibits.

This is a marvelous museum, lately reopened after a major renovation. The eye opener is seeing the substantial number of Picasso's sculptures as well as his paintings. The collection spans the artist's work over his lifetime, and clearly shows his evolution as a great modernist.

We visited this museum in 2013 before it closed for renovations. Upon revisiting it, we can't understand what took them so long. There's nothing particularly striking about the new museum and the contents are no more or less impressive than they were before. The Picasso...More

Once you get inside the building there are elevators. But the path leading up to the museum entrance is uneven and you might need assistance to make sure the wheels get over the little steps and cobblestones.

You guessed right. The best plan is to skip the Picasso Museum. They've wrecked it with a crazy modern remodellling scheme and there are very few works by Picasso in the place, even when all the levels are open.
