    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!

  • A nice little museum. Well organized and reasonably priced, but if you are looking for a comprehensive Picasso experience, be aware this is not it. It’s mostly a collection of some very early work when he was connected to Barcelona, then some minor pieces from later in life. Virtually nothing from any of his prime periods. I didn’t find that the audio guide added a lot over what was written on the walls. Still worth the experience as long as your expectations are appropriate.

  • Nice but it's a small museum. Beautifully preserved. Make sure you get a local guide. We had it in included with the Gothic Quarter tour and our Guide was helpful and knowledgeable which made the visit worth it. If you include the Gothic Quarter tour suggest going for the early AM time slot Barcelona tends to get hot quickly and the late morning early afternoon sun can be a bit too much.

  • I visited this place due to my interest in art. I wasn't as excited about it by the end. There was more about Picasso rather than his work. There was good context to his life but the exhibits were not as exciting as expected. I wish I'd known that the museum is free on Sunday afternoons!

  • I bought a ticket only a day before I went to the museum and there was a lot of space. My booking was at 12:15 but I was allowed in 15 minutes earlier. The price of the ticket is inexpensive (€7) to what the experience was. No photos could be taken in the museum. I did not get an audio video as I think that the text on the walls gave a great background story but it seemed to give details about every art piece from what I saw with other people. They say on the website that all bags must go in lockers but they don't say that you can actually keep smaller backpacks on your chest which is what I did. There was a wide range of his developing style from maybe some styles which you don't associate with Picasso to his classic abstract style, but both were fantastic to see and to see the contrast between all his styles which show different stages in his career were fantastic. One criticism would be that it didn't seem to always be in chronological order unless I went in the wrong order, this was a little bit confusing as they did it using numbers for each section but I wasn't noticing which sections I had been in this could have been done better. Overall the experience was great I spent about 2 hours in there and it was great even without the audio guide but if you want to know details about all the painting then it was only a small increase in price to do so. Without a ticket the queue seemed quite long so I would recommend getting a ticket.

  • Nice place to visit, beautiful location. The path to follow within the museum could have been clearer. Also, make sure not to take any picture! I didn't see the (tiny) sign and when I got my phone out, this employee guy literally barked at me!
