More friendly than Museum Picasso

Didnot have to 'prove' disability. Staff put ramps where needed. Nice house where Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born.

This is the place where Picasso was born and lived until age 10. There is not much that reflects his amazing life as an artist but it is interesting seeing some of his father's paintings. There are a few prints by Picasso and some clothing items that belonged to the family.The gift store on the main floor has some lovely... More

Then this one is more interesting in filling in the background to his life. I would suggest not trying to do both in the same day unless you are really short of time as too much can spoil the visit.

Pleasantly situated just off one of the main squares of the city, this is an inexpensive if fairly short visit .

This is a real apartment where Pablo used to live with his family. You will some cloth items belonging to the members of the family, photos, a couple of paintings, but not by Picasso.

Museum for a Picasso enthusiast. Birthplace of Picasso, not so many of his paintings but interesting building and a nice view of his childhood and family.

I was looking for the trip and was thrilled to find out that you can hear the background and explanation of every painting and sitting inside the museum! It was great for every art lover, my husband got board though cus he doesn't know english, and couldn't understand the speakers' explanation.

This very small museum contains very few examples of Picasso's work. He left Malaga aged ten so there is very little actual material. The building was the one his family lives in but contains nothing to connect it to him. The few works by Picasso are badly curated. Poor value.don't bother.

Because I am a huge fan of Picasso, I looked forward to seeing where he was born and to see artifacts from his life time. What a disappointment. There were very few pieces from his life, just filler to make it worth the euros they charged. My husband did not join me. I thought he made the right decision. I... More

This museum is less about Picasso paintings and more about his life in Málaga (although there are some paintings too). It's free on Sundays and worth a visit, but would not pay the full admission fee unless you're an art enthusiast.
