I am no art lover and am almost allergic to museums but this one is amazing. Spend 3 extra Euros and take the audio tour which I did. You will travel through history over next hour or so. You get the complete feel of picasso's evolution as an artist and you get an insight about the city's landscape over the past century through his paintings.In one place you can sit and read all the books on him. There is a lovely souvenir shop on the ground floor.Main museum is located on the first floor.If you want to enjoy this place go alone ( if you have friends with you they are likely to ruin your time).I found a few lost people without the audio guide who seemed unimpressed.This is not a place which will awe you unless you carry the right mindset!
I have always been having strange feelings about Picasso. Never looked at his paintings closely. Have heard that his works are kind of untypical... So much happy that it finally changed into something more understandable to me... I like Picasso now! His drawings are great and his vision of art is impressive! The museum shows changes in his art through his life. His later pictures bring minimalism, symbolism, and a bit of puzzles together, and are truly untypical. I enjoyed the time in this museum and feel some enlightenment since I visited this place. Must see for all who likes any kind of visual arts!
A good art gallery with many sketches and paintings from Picasso. Brought a ticket on door 15 min wait which is fine. Has a small cafe to eat there if needed. Shop is very well stocked. A great visit.
Great works of Picasso on display, many of which I have not seen before. I was able to take advantage of free entrance fee day, which you can reserve in advance online. Museum store is a must visit for anyone that likes Picasso’s works.
Were here on Sunday afternoon: waited in a queue for a while but it was worth every minute. The museum exhibits work of Picasso from every stage of his life but we expected more artwork. Also there is a museum shop downstairs which has cool & cheap things to buy.
It's totally worth to see it. The museum have practicaly all his works since Picasso was 14 years old, also you every room is described in three languages( Catalan, Spanish and English), so you can read everything about his life and career. Also it's very great that they have these promotion, that every Thursday they have free entrance from 18:00 till 21:30, the only thing you should do it's to register online in their official website and you have your tickets :)
