The Museu Picasso in Barcelona is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the 4,251 works that make up the permanent collection. Furthermore, the Museu Picasso, opened in 1963, also reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate, solid relationship that was shaped in his adolescence and youth, and continued until his death.

The Museum is very rich in regard to work from the formative years in the life of the artist; it is practically exhaustive up to the Blue Period. The Museum also houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series Las Meninas (1957) as well as a comprehensive print collection.

Before visiting, I had very low expectation to Picasso's painting as I might not understand them at all. We started from temporary exhibition, amazingly they are so close to human being and that was his true experience before cubicism. His early masterworks were extremely interesting. In the permanent exhibition, you can see lots of paintings that you might have seen... More

Not a lot you can review about a museum dedicated to Picasso. So briefly... 11 Euros (£9.80) entrance fee and well worth the money. Lots of paintings/sketches/studies by the artist throughout his life with informative but brief information. The building itself is as interesting, architecturally, as the paintings themselves. Great gift shop selling everything Picasso imaginable. Definitely a must see... More

One of the few places without a huge queue and not too busy inside. Airy light rooms full of Picasso paintings, prints sand photos. Good history of his life and work. Not easy to find as it's tucked away down a side street and isn't remarkable from the outside. The interiors vary from plain white walked rooms to ornate panelled... More

Easy to navigate and not miss rooms, friendly staff, beautiful building, lovely art.. went on a Saturday afternoon (BUY TICKETS BEFORE to avoid long lines) and it wasn't crazy busy even! We took our babies and people enjoyed them laughing and they are (as Barcelona always seems to be) very child friendly! You won't see the typical Picasso paintings, which... More

This Museum is worth seeing if only to understand the evolution of one of Spain's most celebrated artists. You really see the genius of Picasso through the main exhibit.

For the lover of Picasso this museum is a great study of his early works. One can see and feel his transitions, moods and metamorphosis in about two hours here. Located in a very quaint section of Barcelona

I'm a huge picasso fan and this tour did not disappoint. I loved using the audio remotes because you could choose which pieces you wanted to learn more about. If you're an art buff, this is definitely a must-see.

This building is beautiful with nooks and crannies worth seeing just as much as the works of art. My kiddo enjoyed having his own audio guide to search out the paintings and teach him about their meaning. You can do this in 1.5 hours if you are on the move with a little one and there are gelato shops and... More

The museum contains works from a series of different periods of Picasso's life and shows how his talent developed throughout that life. There is also currently a temporary exhibition focused purely on his portraiture. Both are fascinating and worth the 15 minute queue (in March).

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
