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.

As part of a city break, my wife and I visited the Museu Picasso. It cost €11 per person entrance fee. It was a very interesting collection of his work - especially seeing how through the years he went through difference phases. Also, seeing multiple paintings of the same view/subject and how he played around with interpretation and colours etc... More

This seems to be one of the staples in the Gothic Quarter (for good reason), so be sure to arrive early in order to skip the lines. Also check in advance about tickets -- I believe they are free on Sundays. The museum is nicely laid out in terms of each individual gallery, but navigating between them is slightly confusing....

If you are looking to find a background to Picasso's life then come take a look. However if you are wanting to see some of his more well known works then you will be disappointed because they are not here.

Really nice museum and would recommend to all! Informative texts and an enjoyable experience for any art lovers! Great variation and set up. However, it could be a bit more interactive, like the Picasso museum in Malaga

Perfectly located, easily accessible! Slap bang in the Gothic quarter and I really enjoyed my visit. Very large collection, audible device available which provides with further information and additional pictures that inspired the artwork or processes used. The venue itself is beautiful and I could see a varied audience within the attraction, so it is good for all. The shop... More

The building of Picasso's works is perfect. The historic building is nestled within other buildings of similar era, architecture. It was a bit challenging to find with navigating phone app, but that just could've been my incompetence. Short walking distance from metro. Self -tour or audio guided. Very nice posted info with the displays giving the visitor insight into Picasso's... More

Worth the visit even though I don't get this stuff. Lots of Picasso drawings, paintings and ceramics. Tickets not expensive. We went on a Thursday afternoon and only had to queue for about fifteen minutes.

It was different from the Picasso museum in Paris. Fir students, it was free entrance, it's perfect to go. The audio guide explained well for Picasso's work.

Usually it is a very long waiting, if you are lucky with no line, then worth of seeing, but really not worth of waiting in the line.

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.
