  • Be sure to grab your tickets in advance to avoid the queues. The Museum is located in one of the alleys, you will have to search for. Next great souvenir shops and cafes. the museum displays different stages of Picasso. and you can see how from realism, enough academic style Picasso came to Cubism and its famous works. In the early creative work there and marinistskie work, landscapes, scene work. Very informative.

  • This is an excellent art museum located in a very interesting building. Of course there are many of Picasso's pieces in many museums around the world. This museum shows the entire scope of the artists...  read more »
  • The exhibition itself is fine, perhaps over the price if you're not with reduced input, although there are free days. Unfortunately what I pushes to write this review is it little professionalism of many of them workers of the Museum, that chatted as if were taking a beer while them visitors (or part of them) tried to attend to the audioguide or read the reviews. A penalty.

  • Very interesting museum showing a side of Picasso you wouldn't normally expect. His etchings are amazing, though they contain a lot of nudity and erotica, so may not be suitable for everyone. His ceramics were really interesting as well. We had to queue to get in, but it didn't take too long and it was worth the wait. The gift shop at the end didn't really contain much of what had been on display, but I did pick up a book of his etchings which I love.
  • Dont get me wrong, Picasso is a good dude. And i even kinda like one or two of his art. The thing is my wife made me to wait more than 2 hours in the f@#$ing line of this museum. If you have to wait that long JUST STAY THE F@#$ AWAY and enjoy everything else about Barcelona. The funny thing was, there were so little crowd in the museum while we were in there... some sadistic management could be in charge.
  • The management in this museum is pathetic at best. We bought online tickets so we would skip the lines We arrived on time but because the place is disorganized by the time we cleared security and had to go through lines to get the audio guides it was past the time on our entrance by a few minutes. They would otherwise let us in and we had to wait in line to get other tickets which were 3 hours away which is not very convenient. I complained to a manager and she was as useless as her subordinates. She told me to to write a written complaint. I told her how would I know that it will get to the right person. She could take it and toss it in the garbage. I would not recommend this place. If you have online tickets arrive there at least 45 minutes before that time.
  • Perhaps I was fatigued when I entered the Picasso Museum, but I was a little disappointed to not see many truly inspired works. For art historians, this museum might be blissful, since it displays some complete collections of his work that demonstrate a multitude of ways of interpreting different subjects. However, most of the art is from his earlier periods. That said, if you are in Barcelona for more than a few days, it is worth a visit.
  • Was not really impressed with this museum and found that to be a shock. I am a huge fan of Picasso, but this museum concentrates on his early work. Although I found it very impressive what Picasso was able to create an early age, I found the overall experience a underwhelming. No photos can be taken inside, and the museum gets very noisy and crowded quickly. Not sure what would be a good time to go to avoid the noise and crowds. We arrived at 2pm.
