The most famous arteworks are not here, and many of them are on loan. Microfone/Speaker guide is useful but not comfortable. Price is right, the location is controlled and clean.

We came here with a tour guide which is a good idea. He connected this place and others in Malaga with Picasso. Interesting to find out about the influence of his father on his artistic talent and about his many romances. Steps away from this...More

While interesting it is where Picasso was born, there is an apartment a few doors down where he lived for 11 years but you can't see it! This place is very small but for €3 you may as well if you are there. Easy to...More

Uninteresting. Just a waste of money (4 euro for the entrance fee). You cannot take a picture inside of the house. Better if you just take a picture in front of the house and take a picture with the statue of Picasso nearby the house.

On the corner of the Plaza de la Merced is the apartment where Pablo Picasso was born and lived for about 3 years. There are a few paintings displayed and some artifacts and memorabilia which might have belonged to the family. I'm afraid to say...More

Save time: skip this and go straight to the Picasso Museum 5 minutes away on foot. Yes, this is the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. You quickly find out however that he only lived there for a few years as a child. The exhibits include diverse...More
