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 found the place to be a bit expensive for the quality of the experience. The museum is nicely organised but too focused on procedures and not on visitors.

This museum focuses on Picasso's early paintings, which include landscape paintings and portraits. There are a few cubist paintings, but his masterpieces are not here. The collection is large, and it takes about 2 hrs to finish the visit. The only thing disappointing is that photography is not allowed inside.

Wonderful site in connected places modified to house the growing Picasso collection. Connects his time in Spain and his fellow artists in different phases of his career. I was most impressed with the "Las Medninas" paintings, which he had modeled after the Velazquez painting, which I had seen in the Prado earlier on our trip.,

Very interesting museum. Is in remodeling mode but could easily navigate and see numerous works on display. Mix of old and new parts of building was unique and made the museum very attractive itself along with the many great works by Picasso.

Buy tickets in advance!! The museum sells out quickly! Especially in the summer months! I didn't buy the guided audio tour, but kind of wished I had. It wasn't mandatory for me to understand the work, but it's nice to listen to art historians discuss the work. The building itself is fantastic and Picasso's work didn't disappoint. It gets crowded,... More

We enjoyed the Picasso museum. It was especially good because the museum's temporary exhibit was of Picasso's later work (cubism, pottery and paintings from when he lived in France). If you are a fan of European artists from that time period (1881-early 1900s) such as Monet, Matisse, Cezanne, then you will enjoy this museum and exhibit.

This is a historical museo of Picasso's life. Most of the pieces are not his famous ones, perhaps they were all out on loan. I learned a lot about Picasso and if you are a lover of the artist, this is for you. If not, I would not put this on my "must see" list for Barcelona.

It was inspiring, seeing the stages as Picasso worked his way through art school and then various genres of art before embracing (founding!) Cubism. What a multi-talented man. I was especially awed by the sheer volume of work he created: his studies of the Las Meninas simultaneously with those images of the pigeons from his studio window ... Amazing. Most... More

Quite good collection of Picasso spreading a very big variety of his work in a building which gives the impression of building to live in (not a typical museum building). Located in a nice (traditional) area of the town.

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.
