Since the Marais is the only place with open stores during the week end, it's nice to go in the area and visit the museum. It's a nice museum but can be fairly crowded on Sundays.

There is no other setting in Paris more impressive. Both the building (hotel sale) and the artist who has filled it. It's worth 2 visits. One just to take in the building another to absorb the vast legacy, artistic wealth and energy Picasso has left behind. This is a brilliant setting in the Marais.Not to be missed.

We went to the museum in march 2013. It was closed for restoration until "summer". The marais is a lovely area though. The sunday markets there are interesting and the food is great. Get there before noon though as everything packs away a bit after midday. Only to reappear in the evening.

I had been teaching art for 15+ years and always was a little ticked off by Picasso until I came here. When I visit any museum I play a game I call "spot the genius" where I walk into a section and look for the genius. And, if he is there, it is always Picasso. But, when I spent the afternoon in this house I repented. He is the genius. I loved the arrangement of things so you could see him become obsessed with something, like the clay masks he made on a holiday to the beach. Glorious. But notice, too, the last room where he is dating his paintings by the day, when he became a man who painted "Picassos." Sad. I've rarely been to a place that challenged my heart that much. I wish I had spent more time and brought my sketchbook/journal. I'll go back next time.

Contrary to Barcelona's Picasso museum that houses mainly early youth paintings of uneven quality and interest, MP of Paris houses a great collection of some of his best masterworks of all periods as they were kept by the family at his death and given to the French state in place of inheritance taxes (dation). As often with "dations", the ministry of finance was advised by the best art curators and picked up mainly masterworks that are almost all emblematic of a given important period of the artist life, enabling the visitor, more than in any other Picasso museum (barcelonna, Berlin, Luzern etc) to have a complete view upon his long and rich artistic life & evolution from one artistic period to teh other.
Definitely a "must see" for art lovers and people interested in modern art.
last but not least, the museum is housed in one of Paris 's magnificent "hôtels particuliers" (city palaces) that belonged to an immensely rich XVIIth century tax collector: the unique & fabulous staircase is almost a reason in itself to visit the museum.
second reason to visit it is the area where it is located: Le Marais, the oldest area in paris, full of Stately & aristocratic XVIth and XVIIth century palaces...
