The museum is an ode to the genius of Picasso and well worth spending a couple of hours wandering through his surreal artworks. There are about 285 paintings on display , making you wonder whether Picasso ever led a normal life, away from his art. Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga in 1885 and famously desired for his artwork to be displayed in his hometown.
Strolling around the museum will make you realize why Picasso’s talent has made ground breaking changes in the course of modern art. A great window to Picasso’s eight decades of artistic work, the museum is a must visit for any art aficionado.

Good museum and interesting audio guide. It was nice to see some of his very early paintings as a child. It gave an good overview even though they don't have any of his most famous pieces. I don't really like Picasso's art but the museum managed to convey why it was/is so important which helped me appreciate it a bit more. Still not a fan though.
Lovely to be able to see the earliest works of Picasso! The tour with included audio guide is definitely worth it! On 2 floors as well with accessible areas. You cannot take fotos. I would suggest to take at least 2/3 hours as the permanent show is quite long if you listen to the audio guides.
I’m giving this five stars because I felt that even if you aren’t going to see some of Picasso’s most famous work here, you are going to come out of this musuem knowing Picasso better. If you look carefully, you will see that his genius was the ability to see beyond the superficial, and then transfer what he saw to canvas and paper. He instills in his works a depth of understanding of humanity, which I really felt the museum showed off to great advantage. This was a real representation of his life’s work, and not just a showing of his most famous pieces. There were so many works from so many periods, I really enjoyed it! I felt the one negative thing, was that the gift shop really under-represented much of the art in their offerings. I would have liked to see more than what seemed to be three specific pieces of art, slathered on purses, scarves, eyeglass cleaning cloths, etc. I SO much liked the works with the bulls and minotaurs and there were several of Picasso’s works with cats and other animals, (I didn’t know he was such a lover of animals!), - but where were they in the museum shop? ‘Death of a bullfighter’ was a fantastic painting and there was only one little postcard available! Still, the museum is a must see. Free the last two hours on Sunday - arrive and wait in line at least 30 min -if not more- ahead of time!
Loved this museum as it explains Picasso through his different phases and showcases exhibits and paintings that go b beyond the well known pieces. Even better, some exhibits juxtapose (fancy word i know) / contrast his works with works from other Spanish artists that influenced Picasso's style.
I enjoyed the visit, although was also nice to get in for free on Sunday after 4pm. There was a queue at 4.10pm, but it moved fairly fast. Not much queue after 5pm when we were leaving. It'd be nice if the signs for the art pieces were slightly larger, especially the titles, as I found them hard to read.
