  • I confess to not being among the lovers of Picasso (and I know I'm making enemies by posting this confession) but the description of my experience will try to be fair with this character. The building that houses the view is really beautiful, addictive. Well, I couldn't say the same for the collection. Aside from the youthful portraits and sketches (some of the latter I've literally loved) the Museum does not report the latest forms of the artist (which to me is partially a pro). Place to visit again if further time, you might discover a Picasso at least youthful lovers!

  • After meeting this museum can be your vision about Picasso change. In this museum you will have the opportunity to view the early works by Picasso when he was only 14 years old. Will be able to monitor its trajectory and understand a little more about his artistic evolution. Not to be missed.

  • I'm not an arty person, so when my wife suggests fit I wasn't sure. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The building is modern and well air conditioned. There is a lot of information to take in. I left happy. There are days when it is free to go in, but I think it's worth the price if you have to pay. They obviously use the money to keep the paintings and art work in such a lovely environment.
  • A really good overview of Picasso's early years. It's very cool how the museum is laid out chronologically, so you can follow the progression of his styles and talent over the years. Don't expect a ton of stuff from the later years. Make sure to get an audio guide, the tour is fantastic.
  • I don't get too much into art, but this was a nice museum and worth visiting when visiting Barcelona. There are lots of pieces to view and it was interesting to see Picasso's progression through his career. The museum provides audio guides for an additional fee. We chose to go without them and felt like we got enough out of it by reading the plaques that accompany the artwork.
  • We spontaneously decided to go into the museum. Students don't pay any entrance fee, except if you want a guided tour or an audioguide. However in my view, there is no need for this in an art museum. There is a temporary exhibition, which changes frequently and also the permanent stuff. The museum shows you how Picasso evolved over time, how his artwork and style changed over the years and also displays interesting information before every section. Additionally, there is a jaw dropping Rokoko room at the end of the tour. By the way: taking pictures is not allowed; this is kinda sad on the one hand, but on the other hand you don't have to deal with the camera guys, so that you can enjoy the pictures. Whether you like Picasso or not, and especially if you don't know his artwork at all: go to this museum, you won't regret it. Totally recommended!
  • Great way to spend a few hours. See how Picasso's style changed over time was fascinating. From his early works through cubism to ceramics it was a very enjoyable experience.
