  • Fantastic experience - it was busy so had to leave and come back later so recommend booking in advance! We didn't grab an audio guide as you can do this on your phones however found it much better...

  • There’s a fairly big exhibition of Picasso’s paintings and a few of his sculptures. With interpretation in Spanish and English. The rooms are well laid out and it cost us E9 each. The cafe sold...

  • Great collection of Picasso's early work, paintings from when he was fourteen years old. Already very talented. Right now there is a collection of his jewelry on display. Getting tickets online is easy, reasonably priced and the museum is not crowded. The area around the museum is cool too walk around in as well.
  • I found this museum fascinating and I formative. I always think of Picasso as well, Picasso! I knew he was a classically trained painter, but WOW! I had no concept of how advanced he was at such an incredibly young age. We purchased “front of the line” tickets in advance and walked right in. We visited on a Friday morning and while the galleries had people in them, none of them were over crowded. It was the perfect visit!
  • Many of the earlier works of Picasso showing his talents at the age of 14, 15 and 16 years old that accounted for his early recognition as a talent. It was refreshing to see that Picasso had mastered technique, landscape and portrait painting before delving into his later area of expression. The collection is extensive. The signage informative in Spanish, English and French. Magnificent old mansion. A true gem in the old Gotic area of Barcelona.
  • You will NOT find the most famous works of Picasso in this museum, but you'll find a lot of earliest of his works here. Audio guide is great if you want to know about path of the artist. The museum didn't felt overcrowded and museum shop has great items with good quality.
  • Wonderful journey through the numerous styles adopted by Picasso over his lifetime. Starting from his earliest landscapes and s etched at age 11, you can see the metamorphosis of his work and style. The only thing this museum was missing was more of his later work. Fascinating well planned exhibition.
