We had the chance to visit the new museum after it opens following works. The museum offer a retrospective of Picasso and all its artistic periods but also a portrait of its life. Paintings are numerous and very well presented. Not to miss!

The Picasso Museum is a very nice building. Specially after the renovation of the whole complex. In the moment there are mainly Sculptures, very less Graphics and paintings. So you should go to the Hotel Sale ( this is the name of the building) if you are a Fan of Picasso. I liked the exhibition very much.

The Picasso Museum in Paris or Musée National Picasso, is located in the Hôtel Salé, probably the most extravagant of the grand Parisian houses of the 17th century. The Hôtel Salé is a typical Mazarin building, under the influence of new patrons like Pierre Aubert or Nicolas Lambert who a few years earlier had commissioned Louis Le Vau to design... More

My first visit to this gallery - it was undergoing several years renovations last time I tried. A wonderful building. I wasn't as impressed with Picasso's sculptures but was happy to appreciate a different side to his art than I am used to. Well worth a visit.

The renovated Picasso Museum is on the far edge of the Marais District.....a little out of the way of normal attractions but walkable. The Museum consists of four floors, three of which are dedicated to a chronological exhibit of Picasso's works and how it developed. The lower floor has a rotating exhibit. For those who admire Picasso - this is... More

The curators of this museum in Paris have managed to achieve something extremely challenging - make a visit to a Picasso museum a disappointment. This is an example of a certain movement in French intelligentsia ( I'm part French) that strives to be DIFFERENT at all costs, even if the final result is a total mess. The current exhibit is...

An excellent collection of Picasso's sculptures, paintings and ceramics, housed in a beautiful palace in the heart of the Marais district. Well worth spending a couple of hours. The explanations are helpful. The bathrooms are clean and comfortable. The temporary exhibition was almost as interesting as the permanent one.

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.
