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.

The Picasso museum has a large collection of artwork and isn't a museum that should be rushed. Unfortunately that's what my friend and I ended up doing because it took us so long to find it. There aren't enough tourist signs in Barcelona in general but the trail for the Picasso museum went cold and then we ended up asking... More

Might be my favorite Picasso museum of all time. Interesting works and different from any of the other museums dedicated to him. He said about his time in Barcelona when I was a kid I was forced to paint like an adult when I was an adult I was forced to paint as a kid. There is a great section... More

A nice experience after a long queue. Reserve your tickets online; even this way you will still have to wait a lot. But it worths, the exhibition is fantastic. A must while in Barcelona.

We spontaneously decided to go into the museum. Students don't pay any entrance fee, except if you want a guided tour or an audioguide. However in my view, there is no need for this in an art museum. There is a temporary exhibition, which changes frequently and also the permanent stuff. The museum shows you how Picasso evolved over time,... More

Have seen many Picasso exhibitions in North America so initially didn't plan a trip to this museum. So glad we went as learned lots about Picasso's education and early works. Can be long lineups at times. We were staying close by so asked about best time to visit and only waited 20 minutes.

I enjoyed the Picasso Museum. It was interesting to track his development as an artist and to see what was going on in his life at the different artistic stages. Only gripe would be the 5euro charge for audio tour gadget. Most museums give these free with entry charge

The museum offers an insightful glimpse into the early life and development of Picasso's talent. His classic paintings as a child of 13 are unrecognisable to the 'mainstream' Picasso works that we are all more familiar with. The museum itself has a slightly confusing lay-out and is a bit of a maze, but it does flow in a fashion. The... More

We had arrived in Barcelona from Paris where we visited the Picasso Museum in Marais (3rd neighborhood). The Barcelona Picasso Museum blew it away. Get the audio guides, they are helpful. Go early (our reservation was at 10:00 am) as the queue was quite long when we left. We felt we went thru fast but were there 90 minutes. So... More

First, make sure you get a skip the line ticket online. it is also hard to find. I crashed and burned when I told my wife I knew how to find it. Ask directions! Barcelonians are friendly. You proceed thru the museum in order of his life which makes it very interesting to see his evolution. Interestingly, his early years... 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.
