In this house October, 25th 1881 was born Pablo Ruiz Picasso...this is what you read first when enter this mansion. It is really touching to see things that belonged to the genius master and connected with his childhood such as his mother's wedding embroidery made herself, small baby shoes and dresses, first paintings, clothes, painting brushes, opera binoculars, small library...

Loved this place. Great insight into Picasso's early family life and obvious talent. Well displayed with friendly informative staff. Well worth the walk from the centre of Malaga (it's not far)

It is nice to walk in the place where Picasso was born but there is not much to see. It is good for a short visit, the price is reasonable.

Only one floor was opened for visits. Not allowed to make photos anywhere. Audio guide is in English but people speaking have terrible Spanish accent. All description and signs inside are in Spanish only.

Not a fan of Picasso, but we felt we must go here because of his importance to the art world. We have been to similar homes for authors, poets, painters, etc, and we always find them interesting. There were very few artifacts in this home, but there were some as well as some important art that you can hear about... More

Provides interesting information on the life of Picasso. The audio is worth it but drag on bit after you go through the temporary exhibition in number 13.

The limited self guided tour of Picasso's childhood home, is quite interesting. Family photos and documents, and memorabilia such as christening gown and baby shoes, were engaging. The audio tour is quite good and helps you fully appreciate the views.

We had already visited the Picasso Museum but decided to visit his birthplace. It was very interesting learning all about his life.
