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!
The Picasso museum was interesting and I also visited the temporary exhibition which is worth a look. A friend recommended me to go see this but I will say it was not as good as the one in Paris. There were not many famous works on display and focused more on his earlier works when he was at art school. Despite this, the museum was set up well with plenty of room to view works. The audio guide was also useful to have.
It is definitely worth the visit. Nice Picasso art and history at display. I just had an hour to see before heading to airport, so you should have at least 2 to 3 hours. Sundays were free admission and you can get tickets online.
It is a good museum,if you are planning to go there.I recommend you to buy the ticket online to save time and not do the long queue.On Sunday is free..If you are a student,you have a good discount.It is banned to take pictures inside of the gallery.So,I recommend you not bring your fancy camera to there. If you like the art,you will love this gallery!.
Never been much of an Art enthusiast, but felt I needed to experience the Picasso Museum - WOW wonderfully layout in a wonderfully designed space that captures the heart and sole of Barcelona's architectural influence on the world. My wife and I walked through and really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to anyone who is planning a trip to Barcelona to take the time to go see this display of artistic genius.
I have to admit it, I don’t get Picasso. There I’ve said it. Call me a heretic if you like. His early works are what I would regard as traditional portraits, landscapes etc, then suddenly cubism takes over and ultimately his paintings look like they have been painted by children. Emperor’s new clothes or artistic royalty? Whatever your view point this place is worth a visit so you can make up your own mind.
