  • We have to earn the visit typing the bus from Golfe-Juan and the rise of the Hill walk if you don't have a car. The building can quickly visit with works by Picasso and other painters based in Vallauris. It of nothing extraordinary, including the "War and peace" mural in the chapel. The whole remains interesting for the price. Pay attention to schedules to avoid unnecessary travel.

  • Beautiful collection, but photo not allowed
  • Nice small exhibit of ceramics. There is a video in English in the chapel apart from that everything in French. With so many international tourists paying the entrance feee it would be kind of nice to have the labels of the artwork and some information on English. Staff speaks French only. No souvenir shop. Kind of half hearted execution and operation.
  • MUST VISIT. Picasso pottery and the famous "War and Peace" chapel which precede Guernica. A jewel and very cheap entry fee.
  • There is only a town of ceramics, precious in the center ceramic works of Picasso. Small enough could spin to see if there 30 minutes. Because there is no bus from Cannes Sunday inconvenient since they must be using the Vallauris station.
  • 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.
