I'm not an art guy, but this held my interest for the 1.5 hours we walked around. Building is cool, views are great, and it's always fun to learn a bit of art history. Antibes was one of my fav stops in this region.

Beautiful building, confusingly laid out. First exhibits are not of Picasso but some quite good stuff nonetheless. Picasso's works here are his Antipolis collection, not his finest work - just for your awareness, this is not a gallery of Picasso masterpieces. Worth visiting.

This place will be a disappointment if you are a Picasso fan, as there are only a view average pieces on display with the biggest collection being in Paris, but the views of the Mediterranean are sublime and the Grimaldi palace is architecturally very interesting. Worth a visit for the views alone.

Yes this museum is small, but the building and view itself is worth the stop. Art is very accessible and docents are helpful. The sculptures on the property are inspiring. For the price of a beer this is a real bargain!

My friend and I popped in here before going to the beach and while there were a handful of pieces that we loved, there's a lot of dross in here. It's only 6€, so worth visiting if you're at a loose end, but I wouldn't call it unmissable.

Not being a Picasso fan I can't really comment with any great authority. It's a quaint museum built into the old castle. There are some non-Picasso visiting exhibitions as well as a few originals and some scribbles from the man himself. I was more impressed with the visiting exhibitions as most of the Picasso's looked like they had been done... More

Art from both the man himself and some of his disiples. 6€ entrance fee. A bit boring. Some of his work was presented as development on several scetches. That was interesting.
