  • This review is for the museum itself, not Picasso's work. I don't think I'll understand his work ever. It's good, I just don't know. The museum was wonderful. Staff was helpful and nice. The layout worked pretty well and there was a lot more to see than I thought there would be. There is also an area on top where you can get a great view of the Sea. I can see why this place inspired such great artists.
  • This is a serious gallery, so only worth visiting if you want to learn stuff. Take advantage of multi-entry with the ticket, and especially the adjacent archaeological museum and it's hypocaust. Get back down the hill and the military museum, also included, is fantastic. Please remember this museum is also a war memorial and that Napoleon is a respected historical figure here. If you walk there from the centre, be prepared for a long climb.
  • For those visiting using the French Riviera Pass, it is required to have the same verified before the Tourism Office before being used in the Musee. It was good that the staff allowed us to go inside because we have babies. Limited Picasso artwork.
  • Personally, I think it's a MUST SEE when travelling in Antibes, and even when travelling in Nice. The chronological order of the paintings create a suspenseful story, that left my NOT SO FOND OF ART wife thrilled and interested in art even after the visit. Can't say too much from a professional artistic level, so as a regular human being, I enjoyed it very much.
  • If you're expecting to see his most renown paintings, it might not be the best place to visit. But if it's ceramic, unsung plates and draft drawings, go up to the remparts, cross the nice Provençale plazza and spend a little moment, it's Picasso after all.
