“The Picasso Enigma”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Great exhibition of Picasso providing a useful history tour of the artists life whether you're a fan or not. Appreciated the free audio tour handsets and English translation on signs. Bonus was the basement archaeology and Phoenician relics demonstrating the age and history of Malaga.

“A museum in a home”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

In Picasso's birthplace (Malaga) you can find the Picasso Museum. Not well known during his lifetime, Picasso's paintings have certainly been included in the genre of modern art. A uniquely talented artist, Picasso's art is certainly worth viewing.

This museum is a rather large villa and does not feel like a museum. The check-in/coat-check reception area is not very customer friendly. You are herded into a small corner where you must check any backpacks/luggage and then buy your tickets. You are certainly reminded by every docent that no photographs are allowed within the exhibits; however, in the hallways and balconies throughout the museum you can take pictures of each other. This is worth it as the interior courtyard is very beautiful.

The museum is not very big and certainly is not home of Picasso's main collection; however, the brief exposure to his work here is certainly worth the price of admission if you are here for more than a day. We visited the museum during a port call from a cruise ship and we still found enough time to spend on the beach. You may even spend more time in line waiting to buy tickets that touring the museum so plan to attend early. If you are visiting in the summer, the museum can get very warm in the afternoons.

“Average visit”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

You can skip it if you are not a big fan of Picasso. Instead visit the house of the painter, it is much more interesting and interactive.

“worth seeing”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

not the best picasso collection, but certainly worth seeing. audio in different languages help. When visiting, opt to include seeing the basement of the museum which holds very historic building parts from as far back as 6 B.C.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

From the start we made to feel like we were not really welcome. An over officious guard tried to shepard us into the queue, then we were told NO PHOTOS, NO PHOTOS we did not see any signs stating this. Then inside we both felt as if we were constantly being watched, for what I don't know, maybe they thought we might try to "take a photo" . On the whole not a place I would recommend. We have been to better exhibitions of other artists, eg Cezar Manrique, Salvador Dali & Gaudi and had MUCH better experiences.
