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.

Great museum

We visited some thirty years ago(!) and we have must say: it's improved quite a bit. What used to be a museum with a few drawings is no a full scale museum. Go see it!

Admittedly, Picasso isn't my thing. So I really went along for my friend. I was expecting to be a little bored and I was right.

Outstanding museum of Picasso works, beginning in early stages and reaching through life. Incomparable. Have seen his works in other museums, but this one gives you a true sense of the artist.

I didn't know much of the early years of Picasso, and this where this place gave me all the phases of his paintings. The place was nicely arranged and easy to navigate thru the crowd. The museum is free on the first Sunday of the month, which is a really nice option if you plan right!

Wonderful experience and exceptional value for money. We strolled around this Museum admiring the brillance of a artist that was nothing if not thought provoking. Well worth a visit and its a lovely part of the city to walk through on the way to it.

We loved this museum of Picasso's work, and the price was a nice surprise. We happened to show up on Sunday when visitors line up to get in free. Great experience!

Decided to go ahead and when got out purse was told it was free that day! Bonus and explained queue! Had about 30 mins wait from... More

This museum has a very extensive collection of Picassos in a beautiful museum. It includes a nice gift shop, a place to store bags (this is mandatory for bags, but not purses and requires a one euro deposit that is returned), and an audio tour in several languages. While it is a nice collection, the audio tour is a little... More

The texts in English, Spanish and Catalan explain very well each phase of the life of Picasso. The studies for paintings give you an insight into how the mind of this genius worked and enrich the enjoyment of the final paintings.

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.
