The current exhibition, showing the close relationship and works of both Picasso and Giacommetti is absolutely absorbing. The context is that the museum was created from works and records acquired from Picasso's estate in place of death duties . Using this treasure trove, the museum has created a history around Picasso's life story based on not just paintings but note... More

But you want museums to be popular or then we all have a problem...So on a cold drizzly November day this museum was still very busy. Obviously, well worth it...it's Picasso.

Having loved the Picasso museum in Barcelona, we expected to love this one too. But sadly not. Pieces on display were disappointing. Nothing with Wow factor. For the Wow factor go to National portrait gallery in London, before February 4, 2017, for Picasso Portraits Or the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, before February 20th, for the Shchukin collection (Picasso, Gauguin, Matisse,...

I found the Musee Picasso Paris to be rather mediocre. It's a beautiful building, but most the art has a sort of 'left overs' feel; these are the pieces Picasso left to his family. They were conveyed to the French Government to settle estate taxes upon the artists death. Nice place, but wouldn't visit again.

Before leaving Paris, I wanted to visit this museum. The villa with the great staircase is in itself already worth going. The current exhibition of Picasso and Giacometti is superbe. Although you may find other places with great Picasso paintings, it is worthwhile to go. Their cafe is in fall not really good, so leave the rooftop terrace to better... More

This was a last-minute stop for us on the way to the Centre Pompidou... glad we popped in! A nice selection of Picasso art of course, but my favorite part was the top floor -- Picasso's personal collection of other artists' works.

Don't get me wrong, I love Picasso and his works, but I was expecting his own museum to have more of his well known pieces such as portrait of Francoise or the old guitarist. The museum did have a lot of his cubist style paintings but lacked the the famous works I assumed would be there

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional 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 people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
