The Museu Picasso in Barcelona is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the 4,251 works that make up the permanent collection. Furthermore, the Museu Picasso, opened in 1963, also reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate, solid relationship that was shaped in his adolescence and youth, and continued until his death.

The Museum is very rich in regard to work from the formative years in the life of the artist; it is practically exhaustive up to the Blue Period. The Museum also houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series Las Meninas (1957) as well as a comprehensive print collection.

Make sure you purchase tickets online before going, as this will allow you to skip the line. We had no wait time at all! Museum is organized to show Picasso's works in mostly chronological order and includes his very early works.

Housed in a connected series of 16th and 17th century mansions, this is a spectacular collection of Pablo Ruiz Picasso's work. The works span from his teenage years to the end. The recorded guide machines are a must to appreciate the development of this unique, somewhat rascally, artist. Allow at least two hours.

Fascinating to see the young Picasso's work as well some of his final etchings in the temporary exhibition. The period in the middle was great too.

We tried to get buy tickets at the entrance and were told that it was sold out for the day. We purchased tickets on line for the next day. We did the audio tour. I found it a bit confusing, as the paintings were a bit scattered about I felt as if I was hunting around to find which painting... More

Nice building. Picasso collection is quite limited - lots of similar drawings padded it out. No cafe (shut) which was a pain because it was a rain storm outside and we had hoped to have lunch and stay indoors. Malaga Picasso museum is better.

The museum is very nice collection. You should make sure you rent the optional audio guide to get a better understanding of artist and his evolution. No bags or cameras allowed so bring a euro coin to rent a locker. Like many sites, the stagger amount of people admitted by intervals, so plan to make reservation times in advance so... More

Visiting the museum gives you a great understanding of who Picasso was and why his art is so important! It is not super easy to find - but once you find it - it is fantastic. You buy your ticket and they give you a time to come back. We only had a little over an hour - not really... More

I loved the Picasso Museum! Be sure to buy your tickets in advance online. The lines for the museum were VERY long. If you buy in advance you can walk right in at your designated time and avoid the long line altogether. The way the museum is laid out provides great insight into Picasso's life, influences and style development. The... More

The building is amazing, the selection of art was amazing. I am so glad I talked in my husband to see this exhibit, I almost didn't go! The etchings were so fun to see. There were a lot of graphic details, so if you are taking your kids - hope you are open to "details"! I was laughing, so much... More

The Picasso museum content was absolutely staggering. The paintings and being able to go on a journey throughout Picasso's work was a pleasure. The problem was unfortunately the lack of information across the museum for those not opting for an audio guide. The information was few and far between throughout. So don't do what we did, and get the audio... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
