The Musée Picasso collection comprises over 5,000 works and tens of thousands of archived pieces. For its quality and scope as well as the range of art forms it encompasses, this collection is the only one in the world to present both Picasso’s complete painted, sculpted, engraved and illustrated œuvre and a precise record of the artist’s creative process.

The architecture is just amazing as the art
Jul 2019
This was an impressive museum designed in a mansion where the architecture is as incredible as the great master's art! We were fortunate to visit at the time when American sculpture Alexander Calder's work was also on display.
We explored the entire museum in spite of the fact my 6 year old (now 7) was only mildly interested. We had already seen many museums this being the 8th day of our 14 day trip. He was a trooper and even though I didn't get to linger on each work as I would normally, I did get lots of pictures so I can study them whenever I want!!

Very interesting
Jun 2019
Museum Pass allowed me a fast access with no lines to follow. The museum was divided into FOUR floors exhibiting pieces like paintings, sculptures, pictures, mostly, and other articles like documents, prints and engravings. The day day I visited the museum, the exhibition included art work of Alexander Calder. All the collection was very interesting to travel through these artists` work.

Poorly curated museum
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is the third time I have visited the Picasso museum and each time I am hoping it will get better and now after the third time I will never go back. Each time a significant portion of the museum was closed and each time the displays were poorly curated.

The museum was supposed to be a reflection of Picasso and his interest in literature. One of the displays included paperback books by other authors that had Picasso Art on the book cover. I guess you could argue that was Picasso’s influence on the world of literature and the editors choice of a book cover but I just thought it was more like what an eighth grader would do if they were a curator.

I am done with the Picasso museum forever and will never go back. The third time truly is in this case a lack of charm.

Hello and thank you for your comment. We are sincerely sorry to hear of your disappointment. Please believe that we are doing everything we can to allow visitors to appreciate the extent of Picasso's work. The museum's policy is to offer a new experience on each visit, thus we regularly renew the display that’s why some rooms could be closed. Looking forward to welcoming you again to the Musée national Picasso-Paris.

Excellent Displays Convenient for Visitors
Aug 2019
I stepped in as part of Rick Steves "Marais Walk" (in his 'Paris' guidebook - highly recommended). I'm not exactly a huge fan of the weird Picasso style (I am totally a realist), but the museum has many of his paintings and other works and it is laid out conveniently for visitors. It is obvious the layout is done with a lot of love and respect for the Artist and his work. There was a combo exhibition with Alexander Calder when I was there and they did a great job of displaying similar works for us to compare the styles and subject matters, it flowed together perfectly.

Picasso 101
Mar 2019
This was my second trip to this museum. I first visited the old one, which was more just a collection of his works in chronological order. This Museum provides better settings to see these works and context for them. The building is beautiful, as well. We visited first thing in the morning when the museum opened at 10:30 on week days. It was fun to walk to the museum from the metro, too.

With the new renovations, the museum is an excellent introduction to Picasso's work.

A decent visit
Feb 2020 • Family
A decent enough museum but not much of his famous paintings here. The building is lovely and the neighbour is very pleasant . The art on show was ok but nothing spectacular. The price was reasonable and a decent couple of hours spent at the museum .

A Wonderful Dive into the Mind & Art of Picasso
Feb 2020
We just returned from our second visit to this shrine to Picasso. We arrived without tickets, there was no line, but the 3rd & 4th floors were closed to prepare a new exhibit. The 1st & 2nd floors are currently devoted to Picasso’s so-called ‘magic’ period of art based on his personal collection of ‘magical’ primitive art. A wonderful museum of very manageable size in which one never feels ‘lost’ or trapped within a labyrinth of endless galleries.

Dear Sir, thank you for your comment! We are sorry to hear about your disappointment. Considering the museum's goal to offer a unique perspective on Picasso's artworks through the exhibitions, some floors may be closed at the time of your visit to allow for the new hanging's preparations. As a result, the reduced price is applied. Rest assured we do our best to inform our visitors beforehand through our website. We hope to welcome you again for the re-opening of our 2nd and 3rd floors on February 11, 2020

Restful experience
Jan 2020
Even if you don't know anything about Picasso this is a calming place in the middle of the Marais district to spend an hour or so, soaking up the pictures. There is a changing exhibit on the ground floor but many worthwhile treasures to explore upstairs. People with big bags are asked to leave them in the basement cloakroom, which is supervised all the time, so reasonably secure. The ground floor shop has some lovely postcards of Picasso's best-known work, too.

Very educational and peaceful
Jan 2020 • Friends
Loved making my way through this museum at my own pace. Was nice and quiet when I went and I enjoyed having the audio guide teach me more about a lot of the pieces. I had a very educational and awing experience.
