A must if you go to Antibes. Loved the views from the terrace and great for photo taking. There are many works by other arts in the museum so start at the top floor if you want to get to the Picasso works. Loved learning about his life and lovers.

We came to this museum as big admirers of Picasso's work, filled with hesitation to see what has he produced during his stay in Provence, We were surprised to see, that this museum holds not too many works of Picasso, most created in several months during hist stay at the Grimaldi castle (this is where the museum is situated). Most... More

Beautiful tribute to the life and works of Picasso...... Only realised we weren't allowed to take pictures after I'd taken loads !!!........interesting to hear from the video playing that each picture had hidden messages with symbolic represensation ...made it easier to start to spot them....Christmas gift to self is a book on his works !!!!

It was good to see. I mean, where else will you see so many of Pablo's works in one place? There were no audio guides so there was little context for the art we were viewing. The staff was put out. I left feeling a bit underwhelmed. I love art history and was disappointed with the experience compared to many... More

I have to admit although a fan of Art I am far from a fan of Picasso I think he is awful, BUT my girlfriend wanted to go and look round and because my family have had a place in Antibes for 20 years. So we went along and I have to say and my girlfriend agreed it was full... More

Before I visited the Picasso museum I did not really appreciate Picasso's work . I left feeling I understood it more. The location, by the sea adds atmosphere.

Picasso spent a few months here, using it as a studio, so the town, with some help from a few donors, made it into a museum. No major pieces and the work that is there is just OK. About the best work is the series of ceramic platters that Picasso did in Vallauris, and the photographs, accompanied by a video... More

Amazing location right at cliffs edge, beautiful restored old building. Perfect lighting. Had small groupings of various contemporary French artists to fill out both the space and limited Picasso pieces. Much of Picasso related were sketches and photos. He was near Vallaruis known for pottery and work he experimented with is perfectly displayed on a large wall (mostly plates but... More
