It's just barely an exaggeration to say there's nothing here. Every major museum and most regional museums in Europe and the U.S. have higher quality works of Picasso. And if you think an over-abundance will make up for the lack of quality you'll just be disappointed again. Look for the temporary exhibitions. I saw a pretty interesting Giacometti/Picasso show. But... More

This Museum is located in a beautiful historic building in the historic Marais Quarter (3 arr.). The building is wonderful but in true french fashion has been refurbished in a modern style with the old peeking though. The museum houses the largest collection of Picasso and it is fascinating to see his journey unfold. I am not a particular lover... More

As a Picasso admirer, I was excited to see this museum. Great pieces in a beautiful building. Went once, no need to go twice.

The collection is brilliantly housed in a beautifully refurbished building. There is usually a well-mounted temporary exhibition as well as the permanent collection. Allow a minimum of three hours. But, in striking contrast to all other galleries and museums we visited in Paris, the staff do not appear to have received any training that they are there to provide a... More

I learnt so much about Picasso. To see how his work commenced from basic sketches to more complex painting and sculptures. The museum clearly shows the growth of Picasso in his paintings. Definitely worth going to see and appreciate his work a lot more.

So, almost a decade ago I visited this museum and I remember it traced Picasso through his periods as an artist. The museum closed and restructured and opened last year. There was a special exhibit and it was just ok. I found the flow confusing and truthfully I didn't feel like I got to really enjoy Picasso. There were some... More

Clearly this is a must visit for anyone who knows and loves 20th Century art. Extremely well curated and very manageable size. No real surprises, but high quality and enough of Picasso's masterpieces to keep everyone happy! Our kids (11 and 14) really enjoyed it. Like all Paris museums it pays to go early. We were in the short queue... More

This museum has 3 floor and now presents paintings and sculptures of 2 artists (Picasso and his friend). I have been twice in this museum and each time was different

Last time I was in Paris this was closed for an upgrade. It is now expensive for what you get. Is interesting if you are a big Picasso fan but I feel for the price and size of the exhibition there is much better value elsewhere in Paris. No queue to get in which was good. If you have limited... More

You will only find second and third rate examples of his art here. Yes , lots of it. His masterpieces are to be found elsewhere: not here. Unless you are a Picasso devotee who needs to see all this rubbish, you can find far more rewarding and surprising small museums in Paris.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
