Audio commentary is very good throughout. Some of his drawings downstairs are easier to put into context because of this. On the upper floor there is quite a selection of family memorabilia and what becomes quite clear is the influence his father(as an artist himself) had on the young Picasso . There's a lovely painting by Picasso senior on display... More

At first a little disappointing but stop and look at what's there and where it is. You'll get a feeling of the period of Picasso's birthplace and the influences on his early life as well as the sheer artistry shown in the preparatory drawings. Yet I can understand the negative comments and perhaps the authorities should have a revolving small... More

On Piazza Mercad don't miss a visit on Picasso's house, with personal objects from him, sculptures and paintings; this imposing modern artist died in 1973; he had made also many ceramics, dessins , gravures and many personal pictures.

Nice to do but not really a must see. Short museum visit is enough and the plaza de merced is not really an attraction

I'm sorry to say that this place is really not worth the visit, and sadly, it feels like a bit of a rip-off. Avoid.

Saw a wonderful collection of work by Torres Garcia - a soth american painter who came to europe via New York. I had not seen any of his work before and it was a revelation. Particularly creative in the abstract genre.

Quite different from the Picasso Museum - mostly about him and his family with an insight into the town's and the country's history as well as the artist.

We visited here because there were no Picasso works to see at the Picasso museum. But it was very sparse and certainly not worth the fee.
