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.

... a genius mindset. I highly recommend using the audiotour, because you can truly apreciate the process of Picasso and his works. His las ninas interpretation is fascinanting!

The line was down the block, so glad we bought the tickets on-line months before. The museum is wonderful and you see a lot of early Picasso, works I have never seen before. His life history is on display and it is very interesting. Get...More

Went here some years ago and its worth paying for to learn more about Picasso and his art. Bought a tile with his painting on it in the shop on the ground floor. If you want to get a free tour of Picasso‘s Museum queue...More

Historic building located along a pedestrian street. Keep your eyes open, it is easy to walk right by. We had a private tour guide walk us through to see the most important artwork. The museum has many of Picasso's early work. Picasso donated the artwork....More

We visited this museum and it was a good insight into Picasso's early art. I would have liked to see more examples of his later work as a comparison to his early work. We had to line up for over half an hour since we...More

Worth a visit because it's only 11 euro. Maybe not so good for a family of four though. It's a beautiful building but the art work is not what I expected. You probably won't see anything that you would recognize - the famous stuff is...More

As someone whose enjoyment of art rapidly wanes after the Impressionist era, doesn't really get most modern art, and thinks that Picasso is kind of weird, I think that most modern art museums should be more like the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. Probably my favorite...More

Great experience, when I got to admissions desk I discovered that students were allowed in for free, a saving of 11 Euro. Great history and an amazing collection of Picasso's work. The building alone is worth a visit.

Maybe I am not a fun of art and do not understand the real art, but I didn't like that much the time spent there.

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
