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.

A good all round experience of the artist and all his styles

It was interesting to learn more about Picasso's life and progression of art. There are a lot of works here I never knew about...not that I knew a ton about the artist. We... read more

It was interesting to learn more about Picasso's life and progression of art. There are a lot of works here I never knew about...not that I knew a ton about the artist. We purchased the headsets for the tour which was helpful. Spent about 2 hours here. In a great location to have tapas afterward or roam around and get... More

I am not a Picasso lover but enjoyed seeing his early works and learning a little more of his history/background. The museum itself is beautiful architecturally from the outside but very cold on the inside. All marble. Not what I expected. Very few places to sit if you have any type of mobility issue. The layout was a bit confusing... More

If you are interested in art, this museum is a must! Great located in the centre of Barcelona! So drinks or lunch or dinner afterwards is easy! Beautiful building, and spectacular work! We were there on a Friday afternoon, not very busy! The queue we saw on Saturday and was impressive and we were glad we were not in it!... More

You have to be a lover of Picasso's art to truly appreciate it. I am not, so although the display of art is impressive I was anxious to leave.

Great Museum, a little bit confusing, we bought our tickets online and no one gave us a map. So we weren't sure where to go next, but I think we managed to see the all exhibition.

On my first trip to Barcelona, I had to see the Picasso Museum. I was surprised that there were ceramics there and many sketches. It seemed like the museum featured Picasso's early work.

Even if you are not a Picasso fan I think it's worth it. You will see that Picasso was more than abstract. Spent an hour here. Bought tickets online to avoid queues (a must do). The Museo is simple and organised chronologically. Went at the last session 5pm and still had a lot of people waiting in queue. I thoroughly... More

Checked out this jewel for the second time, and still does not disappoint. Long but fast line, and entertainment on the street while waiting. Of course it's better if you book online more than 24 hours before, but we did not mind waiting. Once inside, it showed Picasso's chronological artistry. Well presented exhibits and draws out your spiritual side.

Although this museum doesn't have Picasso's best works, it is still worth the visit. The majority of the pieces were donated by Picasso's wife and one can still spend a few hours seeing the collection that spans decades of his career as well as the various styles/moods he went through.

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.
