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.

Beautiful museum with many minor works. If you are interested in seeing paintings produced early in his life, this is the place for you.

I wish they would indicate how long you might wait and why they process the queue so slowly - an information board explaining if there is a quota per -15 minutes etc. After standing for ages there were very few seats to sit and look at the art. Later in the exhibition there were more seats. Enjoyed the opportunity to... More

Love coming to this fabulous museum. Wonderful buildings and superb Picasso exhibition of his work from early days to the end of his life. Go early or book in advNce to avoid the long queues , free lockers for rucksacks and clean toilets. Excellent shop as well Well worth the fee to explore this fascinating artists work.

See loads of Picasso's early paintings and I mean from 15 years old (he studied and lived in Barcelona early on before he went to Paris). Not so much of the really famous stuff but a great insight. Only trouble is you have to queue a lot for this place and that really spoils the experience. I gave up in... More

We took the audio tour of the museum. Very interesting information about the life of Picasso and of course the works were beautiful and moving. Our only complaint was that there are a few decades of his life that seem to be missing here. We asked a museum worker who told us that, due to the fact that many of... More

This is a fabulous collection of paintings, sketches & pottery by Picasso, set in an amazing building. The information is clear & concise - we learnt a lot about how his painting developed. A great experience.

If you know the work of Picasso or not, you must see this museum. It has his early works which i personally found beautiful and his latest works which i did not like. It is better to book online.

We were looking forward to visiting this place but Picasso let us down it was more or less of the same thing we were expecting far more.

we should have pre-ordered tickets. we didn't and this caused us to wait in line for over 1 1/2 hours. this might have something to do with the lower rating. after waiting so long, we then entered the museum and it was set up very nicely. Starting from his earliest work to his latest. the audio guide had a lot... 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.
