  • 2 floors are closed until 10/10/2017, for hanging the next expo; What a little unpolished. The course of the basement and floors 2 and 3 is nevertheless very didactic; in any case, on the French period of Pablo Picasso, as soon as he arrived in Paris. Great light on the diversity of its work: drawings, sculptures and ceramics. We get a bit lost the sub soil, but, on the floors, the path is clear. Not to be missed, before going out to admire the monumental staircase of the Hotel "Dirty" (the Picasso Museum). I will return to the expo!

  • I have visited the museo picasso on several occasions, now in a process of remodeling, which should be completed in November of 2017, liked as it was before it was more sincere with the building where is located and travel was much better, although messy Much better. It is a little messy, the museum curators and architects tried to make something modern, nothing the proposal is bad. just don't go back more.

  • Nothing special, years under construction, two floors are closed. You can see just as much in most other prominent museums in big cities.  more »

  • I was really looking forward to our visit but in truth I wish we had never gone. 2/5 floors were closed off. Why you would close off nearly 50% of you gallery at a time is beyond me. The travelling exhibit that came to Toronto's AGO was far more enjoyable Maybe it would be better with all floors open. Until then save you admission fee for other galleries in the great city of Paris. I highly recommend Rodin Museum or Muse D'Orsay as alternates.
  • 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.
  • Two out of five floors unavailable, so you get a 10% discount. Don't knock yourself out, Paris. About 10 decent pieces and a lot of exposition (words). About a euro each. Well, at least it was relatively quiet.
  • 2 floors closed. Disappointed. Most of his famous works they sell in the gift shop aren't available to see. Be warned. Still charge full price.
  • 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.

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.
