I went in knowing nothing about Picasso. I left as passionate feeling like I want to learn more. I usually cruise right through s museum, i spent 2+ rich hours there happily looking to learn more. Thanks Alejandra!

I managed to spend 2 hours in the museum without really noticing. It was a great overview of Picasso's work and the gallery arrangement let's you chart it's progression.

In addition I took in the temporary exhibition "The Grotesque Factor" which was a collection of Picasso's and other artists works based around the differences in the human form and how they are depicted. From the humorous to the grotesque.

The entry price was reasonable too, just nine euros for a combined ticket.

As well as the two main exhibitions there is also a cafe, book/gift shop and the basement which houses an archaeological dig site, depicting walls and rooms of old Malaga. It's not that big, but worth a look, and is a nice little extra.

Malaga is Picasso's birthplace. But like so many great men he left the city in his youth -- and never returned. This museum is quaint, and small enough to see in an hour. The collection is comprised of donations from picassos daught-in-law and grandson. It sits in the shadows of the Malaga Cathedral, down a cobblestoned street where sidewalk cafes live. Traditionalists will see Picasso's early work, laboured portraits. Another room holds abstract war-time paintings. Yet another room holds explosive 60-ish psychadelic paintings. His later work shows the artist in full bloom. Some are famous. The gallery houses a quiet modernistic tea room -- chrome and glass, blended teas and delicious mini-edible art. The gallery gift shop has something for everyone -- i bought a Picasso collar-less, quarter sleeved striped shirt for my grandson ( on sale for €10).
A wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Malaga!

We happened to be in Malaga on Monday, Picasso’s museum was closed, so we went to Casa Natal de Picasso. It is not big. Since it is a birthplace, it contains some touching personal objects, like Picasso’s christening dress, and very nice pictures from his childhood, with his dad and mum. It also possesses a limited number of prints and ceramics. Actually I felt somewhat disappointed that Picasso's birthplace has been left without his masterpieces. Having seen great expositions of his works in different museums I’d expected to see more in his native place.

Its nice to see where the mistro from the south lived and what he saw as inspiration for his art. Nice cafes around the square too.
