    Very beautiful pieces are exposed, even if they are not the most famous. Each room has its theme, the explanations are clear and concise, and we trace the life of the artist, and we somewhat understand his work. What I particularly like is this Sunday for free, we come simply, no line to get a free ticket to statistics and indicators on the people who come to this day there. Even the temporary exhibition is included in the visit.

    I met Picasso Museum on my first visit to Paris and I loved the location and the acquis. Was closed for renovation for some time and decided to come back but I was wrong. I don't like the current acquis or the organisation of the visit.

    The decor of the Hotel Salé is in itself not really Picasso, but beautiful and dignified. The exhibition is built with great care and didactics and that makes it worth a visit. But the real masterpieces are m.i. not present and it is not a very large museum. Unlike the more famous prime locations to something on an incomplete day at, not a day to hang on.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this Museum. We arrived just in time to grab a quick lunch at the Cafe and then head to our self guided audio tour before the crowds. Everything was easy to find and directions very clear. The shops could be better stocked with items that sell out fast given it is the busy season for tourists. I was searching for a particular bracelet. I even went to the shop across the street as directed but alas they were all out.

    If you like Picasso, this is an absolute must see! I took the audio guide, which is well worth the price, and explored the museum for a few hours. Amazing collection of Picasso's work and the architecture is also fantasticly suitable for the art. There are many floors and rooms to discover, so make sure you don't miss anything.

    Great overview of the master. Over three floors you get an easy-going insight from his early days through his tempestuous relation with his wife and other women. The top floor concentrates on his own collection, including several Matisses. Free entry on the first Sunday of each month! Not the full 5 stars only because some of his 'star' paintings are not there.

    Great museum in a wonderfully nice Parisian neighborhood. The Picasso Museum was offering a special exhibit featuring Picasso's first wife Olga Khokhlova. Lots of personalized material in the exhibit..letters, family photographs, vacation pictures. This very much humanized the relationship between Picasso and Olga.

    My favourite museum!! Super well organised and set up. They also change the collect about 3-4 times a year so it's different if you've been before. Went last year and today and saw completely different stuff. Amazing how his wife Olga effected his work.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
