  • The bottom couple of floors are mainly photos, all interesting, and some art by contemporaries of Picasso, particularly, Nicolas De Stael, which is very good. However as Picasso said, if you want to s...  more »
  • Very nice Museum on the beach! With great weather, the terrace is beautiful. A real pleasure to see these works! To advise.

  • The place is beautiful, there is a beautiful terrace with sea view. The photo exhibition allows to enter the painter's personal life and travel in an era. Tables and representative drawings of a rather interesting period of the painter. Some paintings of De Staël.

  • Small gallery of Picasso. Most of all they have photographs of Picasso while he was working, as well from his personal life. Very well worth a visit. 6€ to enter. Easy to spend an hour, and in 90 min you have seen most or all things.
  • Fantastic place to visit. Worth noting that (when we went in August 2017) the majority of the museum was devoted to some great photos of Picasso rather than works by him. There are some works by him, all 1946 and later, but not a huge number. The actual museum building, a restored castle, is splendid in itself. Note there is a completely different Picasso museum in nearby Vallauris; this also has a small collection of his works, also in a stunningly-restored old castle.
  • It's OK. The collection is really limited with only a did of paintings of real interest, eg the nude on green background. A nice place to visit when they have free opening. Otherwise the entrance fee may be a little overpriced.
  • I was looking forward to visiting this gallery as I'm a fan of Picasso. Having walked 30 mins in blistering heat, discovered that it was about to close for lunch (1-2pm). Returned at 2pm and had to wait in a crowd (again outside with no shelter from the sun) while priority was given to school groups. We were only told that we had to wait as it was then 'too busy'. Eventually managed to get in after about another 20 mins. Entrance fee of €6 is reasonable but there are no printed guides available. Walked through 3 rooms full of photos of Picasso so was in the building 30 mins before actually seeing any of his work. There is not much signage to indicate a route around the building so we wandered around, sometimes having to backtrack to find our way to the next area. The gallery is housed in the former Palace of the Grimaldi family; a beautiful and interesting building but totally unsuitable for an art gallery. The corridors are cramped and visitors stand in doorways to view the art, so it gets very congested. I was quite disappointed with the experience.
  • Small but worth a visit for the background information and paintings you won't see anywhere else, plus the fine examples of his pottery and sculpture garden.
