    Malaga city of birth of the artist is full of works! Amazing a museum or it takes 2 hours to discover a collection out of the ordinary! A great moment in a beautiful building from the center of Malaga... a great time

    You must visit if you are in Malaga, truly a gem that is worth visiting, from 18:00 on Sundays the entrance is free so if you visit on Sunday to get ready for a queue of up to half an hour, is worth the wait.

    I didn't have high expectations when I bought the ticket (€7 including audio guide), however I had to think again: it's beautiful and engaging and Museum pays homage to one of the greatest painters and artists of the century, that up to over 90 years has given us unique and full of meaning. The tour lasts about an hour and a half and enjoy moments of reflection and a respite from malagueno, which is good. Recommended.

  • Very well presented, audio guide a bit vague. Having seen Picasso's painting up close and personal was interesting but he was bonkers.... Don't understand how his works became such a big hit. Despite my feelings I would recommend visiting to make up your own mind.
  • Many visitors make it hard to get a good view on all artworks. The exposed work didn't realy hold up against my expectations. Only few pieces were quite interesting. The museum isn't very big, containing two floors.
  • 33 Picasso's to view with English audio commentary. Best to buy your favourite prints outside at the independent shops. I snapped an original before the "guard" got me!! DIRECTIONS - Look out for the big cathedral from anywhere in the city and head for it. You, hopefully won't get lost like I did! Took me 45 minutes to walk there from the train station and only 15 minutes back once I had the correct route. Should of googled it!!!!!
  • I found some paintings are interesting. No camera allowed inside. There is security in each room. It's a place worth to go once.
  • Great museum in a lovely building and reasonable entrance fee, but only if you love Picasso. How did he get away with some of the childlike rubbish he produced? 😉 I know that he was a genius!

Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
