Not a bad thing to say about this museum. Stunning artwork of course and in a very special site in the charming old town of Antibes. The outside space overlooking the sea is breathtaking. Bronzes punctuate the wall above the sea. Worth a detour.

Small museum, but still good. We went on a Wednesday evening when it was open late (NB trip advisor has the late nights wrong - it's Wednesday and Friday). Great views from the terrace.

The museum sits over looking the Mediterranean coast in a stunning location. The building it's self has been kept to a very high standard and is air conditioned. There were several artist displaying their work in the museum and not just work done by Picasso when he was in France. It was an interesting visit and the gift shop had... More

Set in what was Castle Grimaldi, the museum offers work by a selection of artists as well as a range of work by Picasso and an insight into his life and inspiration. The setting is superb, an impressive building looking out onto the sea with amazing views from many windows. Exhibition is well organised and accessible to those with restricted... More

This museum could not be better located. The collection is housed in an extraordinary castle in the center of Antibes with gorgeous views over the bay. But the collection is only from the period that Picasso worked in the area, so it is a limited range of his work and is not representative of his full life as an artist.

The works of one of the world’s greatest artists deserve a beautiful setting and the architecture of the Picasso Museum certainly lives up to this ideal. Upon entering the museum, you will notice crisp white walls that give brightness and that serve to highlight Picasso’s masterpieces. Tthird floor of the museum resembles an art gallery, with wood floors, track lighting... More

Not the biggest museeum, but just about the right size you want to visit during the heat in summer Antibes. Intresting, and also works by other artist. Realy worth a visit if you are in the erea.
