To be completely honest, many world museums pride themselves on having much more famous, significant, and milestone works of the great XXth century artist. However, the Musée Picasso houses an extensive line-up of his works dating from virtually every period of his creative life. In...More

We missed out in 2014 when the renovations were happening. Not really a major fan of Picasso but to see what he could paint when he was 14 and 16 when he went to painting school. To see a dot painting like the aboriginal paintings...More

See Picasso's life through his various periods - room by room. Each is a wonder filled with interesting information about his life. Leave yourself at least 1 1/2 hours for the trip.

This museum contains some works by the master, but it is important to keep in mind that many of his better known pieces are in other museums throughout the world. I thought the admission price was a little too high, but the building is nice...More

Picasso is an extremely well-known. His art is not really my favorite but I appreciate it and I think it's worth and hour or 2 (max) if you have the time to stop by. I don't like Picasso as much as the impressionists but this...More

I visited the Picasso National Museum in Paris years before being closed for the six years of contentious renovation that began back in 2009. Today the extensive and important collection the museum once housed is gone. These numerous and important works are now on continuous...More

Very little of this museum is currently open, and what is open has very little worth seeing. This is second class Picasso stuff at best. There are better art museums in Paris. Don't waste time or money on this one.

I had great expectations for this museum which have not been fulfilled at all. If two thirds of the museum were not to be visited, why not close it and let me spend the morning in something more useful? Why, if you badly wanted me...More

restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

Once you get inside the building there are elevators. But the path leading up to the museum entrance is uneven and you might need assistance to make sure the wheels get over the little steps and cobblestones.

You guessed right. The best plan is to skip the Picasso Museum. They've wrecked it with a crazy modern remodellling scheme and there are very few works by Picasso in the place, even when all the levels are open.
