  • The museum is a must - it includes works ranging from the first paintings Picasso made at the age of 13 through his late works (The Head of a Musketeer painted at 91) as well as his sculpture and...  more »
  • After years of living in the area I finally managed to visit this museum. I wasn't disappointed. Great paintings I had known of and not seen in person yet. I learned a lot about Picasso, his phases...  more »

  • Beautiful museum with quality mobile guide. Would be nice with some more benches to sit on, so that you can sit and enjoy the art with the guide. I used approximately 45 minutes with the mobile guide. There where a small shop with nice souvenirs at the end of the tour. Placement in the heart of Málaga within walking distance to the cathedral! 4,5 stars from me!
  • This is one of the top things to do if you visit Malecot, Spain. The museum has a pretty decent collection of Picasso, and provides commentary about the different periods of his life. It also includes a lot of the sketches he did for the larger paintings that you often seen other museums. They include an audio guide when you buy the entrance ticket. The museum is laid out and very well organized way where it is easy to follow the audio guide to get a full explanation of his life. I would allocate around 2 to 3 hours for this.
  • Wonderful museum and fantastic art by one of the best artists of the last millennium. There is always another art exhibition, for by the Picasso exhibition, so you can spend a whole day taking in classic and possibly modern art. In the basement there is ancient ruins from three different civilisation that occupied the area over different centuries, giving you a glimpse into the past history of what we now call Málaga. A must to visit when in the area.
  • A good museum with detailed audio guides to help you along your way through the two sections. You learn a lot about Picasso's life and how the thing happening in the world and in his life affected him and his art style throughout time. The entrance fee was low, especially for students. I can advice this museum to anyone with a small interest in art.
  • 8 euro for entry and 6 for students (valid student ID + personal ID as you need to be 25 and under to get the price). 2 large rooms, extra price for special exhibit. Free audio guide. No pictures allowed but they don’t tell you until you’re inside and someone stops you from taking a pic. Lots of cool Picasso work but his most famous works are not in here.
