Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent exhibition to see some of Picasso’s less famous sketches and drawings. Lots to see, spread out in different corridors in different levels in a beautiful building. Also can see a room of Andy Warhol’s work.

On our first day in Bruges, in the late afternoon, our energy started to wane, as we felt that we had, after all, flown overnight from NYC and arrived that morning on very little sleep. Nevertheless, we persevered and visited the Picasso Expo, and it was great fun. In a city that is so celebrated for its connection to the remote past, it was fun to see art that is from just around the corner time-wise. There were all kinds of drawings and informal pieces, like posters made for events and the like, by not just Picasso, but also Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse and others. The exhibition space is sort of like a series of hallways, but it takes you through a large building with a lovely courtyard in the middle of it, and off in the distance is the lovely Our Lady Church. So as we celebrated 20th century genius, we could look out and feel much earlier culture lurking nearby. It is too easy to just call Bruges "magical" but on our first day, as our energy dissipated, I did feel like we were in a fairy land.

Having been slightly disappointed by the Salvador Dali exhibition, I wasn't getting excited about going here. How wrong could I be ! I would highly recommend buying the audio tour for2.50€ , which makes the experience all the more interesting. I am not one for reading all the boards to be honest, I would rather listen . So, for two hours plus, I was completely absorbed in the works of Miro, Monet , Magritte, Matisse, Renoir, Braque, and of course Picasso. I learned about lithography, cubism, surrealism, Impressionism, and other different styles of painting and drawing. You are allowed to take photographs ( not flash ) int he exhibition, and of course there is a small shop. I read the other reviews here, I can only say that the people didn't take time to learn and listen. Admittedly it is not ALL about Picasso! it is much much more.

I'm not a person who usually leaves reviews on internet by after visiting this museum I felt compelled to write something. In short

* very small collection it took us about 15 min to see it all
* most of artwork is not Picasso (5% of the collection if even that)
* No English translation of exhibits so you do your one guessing
* Most of the paintings looks like 2 years old's doodling on the paper, see below.

You'll be better off with speding these 8 euros on one more go on canal cruise or buying small box of chocolates for you mum than visiting this place. One to avoid.

With a few Miro's thrown in too. Both of the artists influenced each other and a sort of emerged between the two. Miro was the master who inspired both. During my college days I had purchased a poster by Picasso, a rather large piece, so to see the original in person and too realize that it was the size of a postcard, really shocked me. Life's surprises, one of the many. Another surprise was a Picasso, that you would swear was done by Matise, looking out a window with a view of the Mediterranean. A railing at the window, the tree, the colors, all so reminiscent.

I parked here during my stay because my hotel's parking was booked and it was perfect. It cost me 12.50euro for over 18 hours (on a weekend!). The site itself is beautiful too.

Enjoyed this gallery's showing of 20th century art centered upon Picasso and his contemporaries. Helpful, and in my case essential, commentary on artists and art that highlighted Picasso's different phases and styles and contrasted his work with other schools. In my ignorance I had become bemused by Picasso's fame and popularity but in the 60 mins I spent here I gained a much different and appreciative perspective. I hope my review serves to encourage others to explore this exhibition rather than infuriate more knowing lovers of art.

We stumbled upon this exhibit while we were in Bruges to see the Bruges Madonna. I'm so glad we did. There were a couple of Expositions going on. The Picasso and then also a Warhol Exhibit. I only did the Picasso, but my husband did both. First of all this collection is from private collectors. Its not just Picasso, but Magritte, Degas, Chagall, Matisse, Renoir, Lautrec, Monet, Rodin and I'm sure I'm forgetting some more. Most if the Picasso work is sketches and drawings. Things I hadn't seen before in other exhibits. My husband said the Warhol included a lot of the Mao and Marilyn pics. The Picasso exhibit is a permanent collection so definitely make plans to stop by if you're in Bruges. Its a self guided tour so it can take as little or as long as you like. You can also take picture throughout. I believe there is an Audio guide available as well.

I found this museum, which is located inside a fascinating building previously used as a hospital in a religious community, very interesting - and worth the entrance fee and time. The building itself is atmospheric and adds much to the exhibits inside that depict the history of the hospital and community. There are English translations for the exhibits. Recommended.
