  • Its a sum-up of the works Picasso made during his time at Chateau Grimaldi. In addition its filled up with other artists work, not worth the money.

  • 80 percent stroller accessible. You can go up the ramps to get in no problem, for 2022 it is 8 euros per adult. Cards accepted. There are numerous elevators in the building but there are still some small steps (3 to 5) to go up and down throughout the museum. The top floor has all the amazing Picasso art and levels 1 and 0 have mostly other artists stuff. Picasso actually spent time here which is very cool. The kids loved the pottery, the tapestry and the huge paintings. Not the biggest Picasso museum I've ever been to but it's got a good variety of art. Don't miss the terrace which let's you see out from the castle to the ocean. Gorgeous view with a lot of wind. Very clean bathrooms.
  • Good museum, interesting part of Picasso. Lot of visitors, who are not familiar with Art-museums. Means: lot of walking around, standing infront of pictures and groups rushing by for example... Although recommendable!
  • Great museum with a variety of different artists - not just Picasso. Excellent location and a perfect activity to do whilst in Antibes old town
  • Amazing collection! Picasso stayed in Antibes for 2 months in 1946. And all his work from that period and mutch more is on display. Visit to this museum is a nice cultural breal from the beach and sun.
  • Definitely worth the trip to Antibes if you are on a Côte d'Azur trip. Not to mention the city itself is astoundingly pretty. The museum is very well-organised. It is beautifully situated on top of a hill with a charming view guaranteed. They exhibit important and rare Picasso's paintings we have never seen before. These collections are equipped with detailed information both in French and English. There is also one Rothko which was a good surprise. Would 100% recommend and would love to visit again.
