  • In mid-July about Saturday, takes place in Vallauris a party from afternoon until midnight to commemorate the birthday of Picasso. This year was not held due to mourning after Nice events on 14. On that occasion the village lights of fires as well as the Museum (free entry) is adorned with torches and candles. Its definitely worth a visit!

  • Already, the Museum is not open during lunch hour... Then you arrive an hour before the noon closing, and in every room of the Museum, the first reflex of the guardians is looking at their watch. Then, the second instinct is to close the shutters of the windows one quarter of an hour before closing, showing you that please... And especially no smile... The Government, such, we love it!

  • My sister and I shared some wonderful memories enjoying our favorite artist. It was market day in Vallauris, the vendors were just leaving and there in the little park across from the museum was Picasso's sculpture of a man with goat in his arms . The sculpture was covered with dirty lettuce and tomatoes left behind by the venders. Oh my, Messier Picasso would not have tolerated this! I remember you could still buy a few pieces of his pottery in one of the street galleries.
