  • 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.

  • 6€-adult t., 3.5€-students/over 65. Nice two story building with inner garden and peaceful atmosphere. The exposed arts are nice, mainly from the later part of Picasso's life, mostly schicces and ceramics. The most part of his work may be scattered all over the world, so what you will see, is a fraction of it. The gallery is reasonably large, but it takes only 30-60' to take the tour. If you have limited time I might suggest other attractions instead. Remember, photographing is forbidden. 📷🚫
  • An interesting exhibition for a Picasso lovers and those who loves him not. I'm the one who belongs to the second group, although it was a pleasure to see his work. The exhibition is divided into 10 galleries (commonly called rooms) where you can see his art and listen to the audio to find out more about Picasso's life and how his personal experiences influenced his work. Ticket cost was £6 (bought it online in UK) it also included entry to another exhibition 'Bacon, Freud and The School of London' (it is held within same building). Both exhibitions were well lightened, and presented. Oh and there is a shop and a place where you can eat and drink with the outdoor garden.
  • The palace that houses the museum is beautiful. Well priced entry and cafe - which has good coffee. The audio guide is quite wafflely and on many occasions doesn't reference the picture it's meant to be talking about for a few minutes. (Great audio guide to be found at the Cathedral) Like other reviews have said there are a lot of sketches and postcards but equally there are a lot of his famed cubism pictures too.
  • The museum is in the heart of the old town so it's a pleasant experience just walking there. It can get quite busy, and there was a query into the street when I arrived, but they dealt with the queue quickly, and you can also buy tickets online in advance which would remove the need to queue. Inside, the first thing I noticed was the air-con which was lovely and cool! Without reviewing every gallery and display in the museum, it's enough to say that the audio guides were really good, while the exhibitions themselves were well planned and, even for someone who's taste in art is a bit traditional, it was really interesting.
  • Great place to get an overview of the artst's career. The collection has enough depth and breath to be satisfying, yet not so large to be overwhelming. The building housing the collection is lovely. Location is in the pedestrian section of downtown Malaga and very much worth a visit.

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.
