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.

we should have pre-ordered tickets. we didn't and this caused us to wait in line for over 1 1/2 hours. this might have something to do with the lower rating. after waiting so long, we then entered the museum and it was set up very nicely. Starting from his earliest work to his latest. the audio guide had a lot... More

It is certainly worth booking your visit online in advance of visiting to avoid the queues. It is also a good idea to pay for an audioguide as the written explanations leave quite a lot out. The layout of the exhibition is confusing and there are large unexplained gaps in Picasso's story that are slightly frustrating. There are some fantastic... More

Nice collections of artworks from Picasso when he was of young age and sketches during the start of his career.

We been to Miro and Picasso and in my humble opinion the Miro one is better. Picasso is a bit over rated and the Museum is not having that much of his great works. In almost every bigger city you can now find a Picasso Museum. The building where the Museum is in is very stunning.

Really enjoyed seeing his early school work. I had no idea how brilliant he was at 14. GET THE AUDIO TOUR. I would have missed so much. Loved seeing his Las Meninas canvases. The gift shop is great too.

If you are travelling during the low season this place is worth seeing. I recommend to visit their website to be prepared. We ame at the end of November'16 and it was a free day. We spent in line only about 20 minutes, little time in the museum shop and then got our chance to enter. It's big, many rooms,... More

This was the second Picasso museum I went to during my visit to Spain. The first was in Malaga and that one offered a taste of Picasso. This museum actually takes you from his younger art school days through his later years. You get to see all the skills and abilities he developed before he became the artist you envision... More

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.
