  • A small museum in a castle with a nice sea view. Enclose some jewels of Picasso at the beginning of his great artistic production the famous Joeau de vivre is the most important. The visit is not very long because the major works are on one floor of the Castle but worth it for the place where the Sun and sea. Now there are also works by other artists are less important but interesting. The photographs are banned but an indexed with Picasso you can do. La terrazza sul mare is remarkable.

  • We had the chance of a sunny winter Sunday that allowed us to admire by windows yellows and blues of the facades and the sea that comes to the foot of the Castle. The place is so amazing and works also. Picasso seems to still be present in the workshop at the top; There are many works from the years 1946 to 1950 who are beautiful; photos too, a very beautiful film about his photographer friend and a wonderful collection of enamelled dishes made in Vallauris. And then other painters, including Nicolas de Staël, with a huge and beautiful table that sticks in memory long after this wonderful visit.

  • I always knew for myself that work of this kind not geniuses for me (sorry ... I do not understand much) and yet chose to visit, because should I visit the Museum such a celebrity. And as it turned out a lot it was even fun, some paintings were forced to stand near them and try to understand what the artist wanted to say? ... And something I really don't understand ... and asked "what is genius?" Yet a visit to this museum remained satisfied. At least in the memory you have necessarily it will remain in Antibes, France, don't miss.

  • Well worth a visit to see a range of Picasso's drawings, sculpture and ceramics as well as art from other 20th century artists. Good information provided and well explained local connections to Antibes as well as photos of the studio whilst Picasso was working there.
  • Very interesting Picasso collection. Must visit if in antibes.
  • We arrived at 1445 to enter the museum. But no entry possible because the staff are changing the till. Why this could not be done over lunch is incomprehensible. Instead the visitors are left to stand in 30 degrees. Lazy, arrogant, unpleasant staff.
  • Loved the place for the beautiful location set around the coastline in the backdrop of castle situated on the old city wall.
  • Not enough good paintings by Picasso. Lovely location. Expect to queue.
