A little disappointing that the exhibits are so few and the extent of the interior of the house rather limited. It does give you a taste of his early life and some of his influences and I guess you feel obliged to visit given the location so close to the main museum.

very disapointed. there is open only one floor, the furniture- there is no furniture- is no originals. we have pay 3 euros entrance fee, but we didn't like. at the entrance you receive an audio-guide, is the only nice thing.

This is a small manageble museum with a small gift shop. Its easy to get around and isn't overwhelming the way some larger museums can be. It is free to visit between 4 - 8pm on Sundays. It is at one corner of Plaza Merced so easy to find.

We visited the museum only because it was free to enter on Sunday afternoon. Otherwise we would consider paying EUR 3 for entrance a waste of money. it's just few early, not spectacular works by Picasso. On the floor there's a reconstruction of the Picasso family house with some history context in one of the rooms. Not of much interest... More

We had visited here over 10 years ago and went back for another look and were not disappointed. It was quite different than we recalled. They had an interesting display of life in Malaga around the time of Picasso's birth and early life as well is displays about some of his relatives, along with artifacts of his, his family and...

We visited after 4pm on a Sunday and found this museum was free to enter and €1 for an audio guide. The museum is not that well signposted, but is in the corner of Plaza Merced by the statue of Picasso sat on a bench. The audio guide is good, but each description could be shorter. The museum is small... More

Though it was informative to learn about Picasso's family, the fact that most of the furniture etc. weren't originals but rather were meant to be like them was frustrating. The audio was wonderful but tended to be much longer than the time it took to view the items. Overall for the price, the experience was okay. The highlight was seeing... More

Very few information and we missed any of his own art work. (except some small early drawings. Had expected more. also only one floor was open to the public, so in 10 minutes we were out and back on the street

Audio commentary is very good throughout. Some of his drawings downstairs are easier to put into context because of this. On the upper floor there is quite a selection of family memorabilia and what becomes quite clear is the influence his father(as an artist himself) had on the young Picasso . There's a lovely painting by Picasso senior on display... More

At first a little disappointing but stop and look at what's there and where it is. You'll get a feeling of the period of Picasso's birthplace and the influences on his early life as well as the sheer artistry shown in the preparatory drawings. Yet I can understand the negative comments and perhaps the authorities should have a revolving small... More
