Wonderful small museum with quite a few Picasso paintings and most interesting pottery works. Nicely organized and good for no more than an hour when visiting the charming town of Antibes.

It's nice to visit this place but don't expect lots of famous Picasso paintings. Still interesting collection. There are other painters such as Nicolas De Stael. There is a beautiful view in the sea from the balcony. The place is equipped for the wheel chair.

The Musee Picasso is as important for the building, formerly the Château Grimaldi. Picasso lived and painted here six months and a number of his works rest here, including the Goat and Joie de Vivre.

Picasso only stayed here a few months, and there few actual Picasso works on show, and they don't really add to the legend. The photographs are interesting enough, as are the other artist works on display, and the museum is worth a visit if you are already in Antibes and you are stuck for something to do on your superyacht....

I'm not a big Picasso fan, but found the home pleasing to walk through. Probably a home run if you care about Picasso, but I found the works on display a bit dull and uninspired.

I visited the museum yesterday. It is in an interesting old building on the water where Picasso painted many of the works in the museum. While I don't always fully appreciate Picasso, this is a good place to see his art in a place he painted with beautiful views of the water. It is worth an hour or so when... More

This was rather intriguing to see where Picasso worked and lived and to see such a collection of his work.

The collection is housed right on the sea front in a beautiful small castle. The first floors are taken up with artists whose works are reminiscent of Picasso, only the top floor has work from the man himself. There are paintings, sketches and sculpture. But most interesting to me where the photos of Picasso and his wife enjoying each others'... More
