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 well presented collection, with strong representation of his early and some late works. Of course, the key work is spread out over the museums of the world. The ambiance of the museum is wonderful.and the staff were very helpful.

I feel proud to say that I have admired works of Picasso in the biggest museums of the world so I wasn't sure of what I was looking for in the small museum of Barcelona. I took back the snobism on my way out. Here you will see works of the greatest painter of the 20th century as early as... More

Go in the afternoon and you should be able to beat the crowds. The audio is worth the 5€, although you can also get an appreciation of the works by the narratives in most rooms. Clearly, the museum's entire collection is not on display and many of the pieces associated with the artist are in other museums (however, you can... More

The name of Meseo Picasso was less than expectation. They have good collection of earlier study of the master genius artist including small oil paintings and sketches. However overall exhibition is disappointing due to lack of later stage of masterpieces. It is more likely showing the last donation after clean up the previous studio and find any smaller pieces leftover.... More

I arrived and entered the museum within issue. I enjoyed the art and ability to visit/peruse at my own pace. I did notice that when I passed by the next day that there was a very long line to enter! I know some tour vendors book tours to the museum and perhaps this is what I saw. I am happy... More

Great chance to see the progression of Picasso through his life. Found the early years particularly well covered. Would recommend booking in advance. We went on a Wet Friday afternoon in Feb and still had to queue for 30 mins to get in. The audio guide was worth getting.

This was a fascinating insight into his early life and realised he was a great artist even though not always sure about some of his later pieces. By seeing the growth in his skill it made me look at his later work in a new way. It was absolutely fascinating and worth allowing considerable time for the visit. He had... More

I absolutely loved this museum, and it was easily one of my favorite stops on my trip. Picasso's early works are so inspiring and beautiful, and it felt like I was tearing my eyes away from one beautiful piece to only be awe-struck by the next.

Pablo Picasso once said: "As a child, I learned to paint like an adult, but it was only as an adult, that I learned to paint like a child". And so begins the journey into Picasso's early life told in his sombre, dark paintings and drawings at the age of 14 and ending with his very colourful, deceptively simple paintings... More

This museum takes you through the evolution of Picasso's art. The collection is massive! Do get the audio guide - it's very helpful. Also, book online and don't waste precious time queueing. Photo was taken around 11am.

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.
