    The meeting with Picasso art.
    Interesting museum showcasing the evolution of Picasso works. We booked one hour ahead and showed QR code on phone. We went to the short line and had to wait about 8 minutes until our ticket time. The museum’s staff and security were very helpful and professional.

    Wonderful Museum.
    Great Museo. Loved the artwork. Only took an hour or more to tour. Nice and cool on a hot summers day. No long lines. Can easily buy tickets on line the day of or the day before.

    If you’re a real Picasso / cubist artistic fan than you’ll definitely enjoy the Museum but if you’re not then……
    Although the Picasso Museum in Malaga is listed as a ‘Must Do’ when visiting the City the overall experience you receive will greatly depend on whether you actually enjoy / can fathom out Picasso’s overall sculptures, drawings and paintings. I have to admit that most of the works exhibited were simply unfathomable to this reviewer with a large number simply being ‘child like’. The queues (in the Summer months) even if you’ve pre-booked are lengthy and the audio equipment provided is of a poor overall standard. I’m in no doubt that true Picasso fans will dislike this review immensely but it reflects my own experience (and also my wife’s).

    Good experience
    Very accessible and easy to navigate, staff friendly and exhibitions very well laid out. Audio tour great for all languages however audio clips were very long for each art piece. Overall lovely experience!

    Good museum visit. Get there before 12 pm.
    Very good museum. We misunderstood the audioguide. It is not the number of the room you enter that you have to press on the guide. Look for the signs with headsets and numbers. The audioguide contains too much info, so you get a bit bored after a while. But the collection in itself is good.

    A little underwhelming
    Passed away an hour here on a very hot day. Not a bad exhibit but quite small. Tip-book tickets online before you go to save on the long lines. There are some works from various phases of Picassos long life but still a pretty sparse exhibit. You’re not paying the earth for a ticket so you get what you paid for.

    Busy but worth a visit.
    Worth booking as the queues are long. Inside the museum is well laid out with a free audio guide as part of entry. Well put together collection. Had to leave my bag at bag storage and disappointed with the lack of care and attention given to it by the staff. Slammed my bag into a table almost damaging the expensive camera inside. I would not bring valuables into this museum.

    Great value and really informative.
    I went because I felt I ought to as I’m in Malaga. Do book online - it is still busy but fine. Despite the crowds you can stand and look at every painting/sculpture as long as you want, and there is a lot to see. I started out being indifferent to Picasso and came away with much more appreciation. A bargain for only 12€

    Art for All
    When in Rome - or so to speak, however, this was a great choice for a morning activity. The museum is split into sections which makes moving around so much easier, especially when busy. The art is great, even for those of us who are not artsy, and had lots of informative information alongside. Definitely worth a visit, however, pre-book your tickets, makes your life a million times easier as so busy you can queue for hours if not pre-booked.

the famous and Recognized Spanish artist Picasso is an edge himself. Through this museum we impart more about the brim and his artistic growth.

We gratified the visit but a little swift... We took the basic visit for nine euros PP I reflect we ought taken the extra fair which in fact wasn't by Picasso

This museum on a human tally is quite delightful due to its presents Picasso's artistic trip in a compact technique. However, minus impressive than that of Barcelone!

Visited the Picasso Museum in Malga, Spain with our tour group. We had the best advantage of having a very good local guide. The only problem I had was that the local guide they used was not very nice, personality wise, and like others occasionally, they tend to talk too long at one work of art, needing to move on, but don't fast enough. Even though they are very knowledgeable about the subject matter, they are weak in people skills and don't pay attention to their audience for clues. So many in the group, including myself, would like to stay and listen, but you have to make a decision in these situations. You only have so much total time there, so usually you choose to finish everything on your own, because if you don't you will not see everything. This happens every so often, so I have learned what to watch out for, and thus do what I have to do. Just a bit of warning if it ever happens to you, just don't put up with that because ultimately, you are paying for an overall quality experience. OK, other than that problematic issue...I did enjoy the museum, even though Picasso art not a personal favorite. I was interested in the man as a historical figure after watching the PBS series, which was excellent and did like having a better understanding of his art after learning more about him. No cameras allowed in this museum (one of my dislikes, but rules are rules). Hope you will get a chance to visit, but preparation is helpful here, and you will enjoy!

Fabulous collection of Picasso work throughout his life, with informative audio for no extra charge. Personally I’m not convinced about Picasso but there is no getting away from his importance in the 20th century art scene, and the museum is located in an attractive city centre building. Certainly worth the visit, not very expensive especially for over 65s!

We all heard about Picasso and he’s irreverence 😊

I usually try to don’t spend much money entering museums and others, because I don’t have time for everything and “time” ($$) for everything, but this was Picasso... had to go in.

The entrance is ok, 9€ with audio guide included, and it shares a lot about Picasso life and his lovers 😊. That was a man in love

There are many interesting paintings and sculptures, here are some pics of what I loved the most.

Picasso was born here in Malaga and lived here until he was 10y

Great value for money multilingual audio tour available and entry price 9 euros, Staff helpful, marvellous art history of the genre plus an insight into Picasso’s own life. Able to experience a close up perspective of Picasso’s works some not commonly seen by ordinary people. Building is 16 th century, good disabled access and fantastic experience for school students too and family experience.

We tried to enter the museum on 29th Dec. but there were a very long queue and was impossible. We were able to visit it on 3rd January but we were really disappointed because none of the most important works of Picasso is stored in this museum. The organization is good since the audio guide is free and it gives a good explanation. Go there only if you don't have nothing better to do.

This is a smallish museum, but reasonably priced and an audio-guide included in the price. Thumbs up for that.
The extra exhibition is not included, and we skipped it as we were mainly interested in Picasso.
The museum was interesting because the artefacts were in chronological order, so you could follow his different phases. It also illustrated the versatility of Picasso, who did not only paint.
I would have liked more and clearer information on important dates in Picasso’s life though. A big list would have done the trick for me.

The Picasso museum is in a lovely building and is very well thought out with a good headphone type guide included available in 10+ languages.

Whilst all the Picasso paintings you probably know are in other museums, there is a good range of lesser known ones spanning his career as well as sketches and sculpture.

The guide focuses as much on Picasso as a person as it does on his works so it is very informative.

Although my children love to copy his pictures, this gallery was definitely not aimed at anyone of school age with nothing interactive for them to do as such. If there was just a colouring table with Picasso pictures I'm sure they would have got a lot more out of it.

Instead the museum staff decided the best thing to do was to follow us around a few feet away watching every move to ensure the children did not go within touching distance of anything. Repeatedly told off for resting against walls, sitting down, pointing etc., it wasn't the most welcoming of atmospheres I have to say.

The only real entertainment was trying to outwit the staff by moving a few steps one way, then another and watching them have to copy like a giant Big Brother game of chess.

All in all, am interesting place for adult fans, not one for younger children.

We were disappointed firstly to hear that the picasso part of the museum was closed but still bought tickets to see some other collections that were open (barely anything picasso related) There were a couple of interesting works but it was impossible to relax and just wander as there were more security guards than guests who gave off a really hostile vibe. They were watching our every move ready to pounce if we got too close to something. We spent about 20 mins here before we couldn't take it anymore and just left. What a waste of money.

I did not purchase tickets in advance but thankfully there was no problem entering, although I did need to give them my personal affects. When I entered the museum I purchased an audio guide that, as usual, proved most helpful. The museum opened in 2003 and houses over 200 of his works including paintings, sculptures and ceramics that were donated by members of his family, so in I went, eager to compare this museum with the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.

This museum is located in the spacious Palace of the Counts of Buenavista. Built in the 16th century, it features a mixture of Mudejar and Renaissance elements. It was built on top of what is believed to be the Nasrid Palace. Archeological remains from the Phoenician, Roman and Moorish eras were unearthed and are now part of the museum’s permanent collection. This building was previously home to the Museum of Fine Arts of Malaga, so when the museum was repurposed for the Picasso works, “it was enlarged with a series of modern structures that extend in the manner of a traditional white Andalusian village”.

I began looking at his early works completed when he was just 13 and slowly moved through the galleries exploring his many sketches and paintings, many of them focusing on a bull. His ceramics are both beautiful and playful, one in particular his Bust of a Faun on a plate that made me smile. Some works by Alexander Calder were included here to focus on the creative connection between these two modern masters.

I took my time in the museum to enjoy many of Picasso’s works in metal like his Woman in the Garden, Spring 1930, but Picasso’s unique creative vision combining odd objects to make something new such as his Head of a Bull from a bicycle seat has been “described by Roland Penrose as Picasso’s most famous discovery, a simple yet ‘astonishingly complete’ metamorphosis”.
