“Learn more about Picasso's life and about his successors”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Allthough the staff varied in politeness and friendliness, the museum was interesting (lots of the items were on loan though, in other museums). I liked the audioguide, it gave you a lot of freedom exploring the museum. The first two or three items were a bit confusing though, we could not quite place where we were supposed to listen to it.
Downstairs there was a temporary exhibition with earthware made by Picasso, and across the street there was an exhibition from another artist, inspired by Picasso.
A divers and fascinating mixture, which we did enjoy.

“Free!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The exhibition was by a friend of Picasso who tended to go for depictions of glass and roses. He did a funny painting in the style of Picasso which I appreciated.

“Very interesting!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The museum is a combination of rooms in Picasso's original parental home in Malaga and of memorabilia from his life in Malaga. There are pieces of furniture, items of clothing, personal effect (a very elegant and ornate pair of theatre binoculars which were a gift to him mother from General Espartero, the progressive XIX century general), reproduction of documents, and photographs. The way the collection is organised is very good, and the audio guide (available in several languages) is clear and well paced (even though there are some disconnects with the room-to-room order here and there). The visit lasts less than an hour and is very with the time. Highly recommended.

“Good pictures and information”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

It would be a mistake not to visit Picasso Museum in his place of birth. The museum is quite small but has some fine pictures. It has a good amount of information and the film which includes scenes of the fascist bombing of Guernica are quite moving.
The armed staff are a bit off putting and a touch surly. Unless you like piles of stones don't bother with the archaeological cellar.
There is some great graffiti not far away toward the Arab baths that would have made Picasso stop and look!

“A good insight into Picasso's childhood”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

After visiting the Barcelona and Malaga Picasso museums, the Casa Natal helped give further insight into the artist's early years. My sense is that he must have enjoyed a delightfully happy childhood, playing in the Plaza Merced outside whenever he was not using his father's paintbrushes indoors! You can quickly see how some key themes in his adult work had deep roots in his childhood experiences. The free audio guide is recommended, and added to my enjoyment of this small but well laid out museum.
