We visited this museum as well as the Picasso Museum in Antibes. Interesting to compare. Obviously here the chapel with "La Guerre et la Paix" (war and peace) here was THE main piece. In these days you would call it an installation. When you sit...More

The museum has a small collections of Picasso's work. The only things that is noteworthy is the vault "La Guerre et La paix", which represents a quiet and peaceful place to stay. Apart from that, there is not much.

Appreciate that the collections on display here will vary, but nonetheless disappointed with our recent return visit to this small Picasso museum. On a previous visit (over 10 years ago) we found a very interesting collection of Picasso pottery themed around fish designs on plates....More

Although this is the national gallery of Picasso, other artists are also exhibited, and done very imaginatively too. It is a lovely building (or complex of buildings really) with some stunning works by Picasso in a variety of media as well as many works by...More

Musee National Picasso is combined with another couple of exhibitions. Two of them are the "Musee de la Ceramique" and the "Musee Magnelli". Most visitors (not a lot when we visited) go for the "La guerre et la paix" murals on the Church next to...More

Plenty to admire in this place to visit. The building itself (with its solid interior reminiscent of a monastery) is worth a visit as it offers great views out into the Mediterranean, but it's filled with not only paintings and sculptures from Picasso but many...More

A high point of our trip. It is worth the stop, you could spend hours just sitting in the chapel and looking at it. Nice town, good food, but if you are in the south of France, you must visit.
