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.

It was nice if you are a fan of his work you will love the place I wasn't able to see the whole place but I'm sure there are even more beautiful piece to look at

It was interesting to see that Picasso started his career as an artist painting in classical style. The venue was rather annoying in that it is badly sign posted. Initially we couldn't find the ticket office, the way in to the main exhibition or the...More

Admittedly I know little about Picasso - we went here to inspect it for a site visit to have a dinner in the courtyard. But we also toured the upstairs and viewed the pieces. Interesting but in my mind not a must-see. Crowded and tight,...More

What a way to find out about Picasso! We walked through a medieval street and into a palace. I love Picasso's work and had seen many examples around the world but I think I learnt more wandering around listening to other guides and noticing changes...More

Lovely paintings, with a fair amount of info. My only criticism is that the timeline of the paintings was a bit out of whack and there's not a huge amount of seating available throughout the museum. Worth a visit.

Interesting selection of early works to his later life. Excellent audio guide. Remember most of his famous works are elsewhere but still a terrific selection. Everyone in our group enjoyed it from 18 to 50 yr olds.

We booked online a day ahead but there were places available. Pity about the tour groups. Good overview of his long career. Good shop. We took a taxi to avoid pickpockets and he was able to drive quite close.

My favorite artist so we wanted to check it out. The museum entrance is from one of the little winding streets and on Thursdays between 6:30-9:00pm it is free BUT you still have to have tickets and reserved time. I booked mine the night before...More

The exhibit starts with his paintings from age 12. Simple sketches and rough oils. Then over 5 years you see the maturation of his style. Unfortunately there is a large gap to his later years. But it was interesting to get this insight into the...More

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
