About Musee Picasso, Paris
The Musee Picasso is a symbolization of display spotted in the Hotel Sale in mourn de Thorigny, in the Marais region of Paris devoted to the work of the specialist Pablo Picasso. The hotel that houses the accumulation was manufactured between 1656 and 1659 for Pierre Aubert, seigneur de Fontenay, who was a duty rancher who came to be rich gathering the gabelle or salt assessment. The draftsman was Jean Boullier from Bourges, otherwise called Boullier de Bourges. The design was done by the siblings Gaspard and Balthazard Marsy and by Martin Desjardins. It is recognized to be one of the finest noteworthy houses in the Marais. The manor has updated hands a few times by bargain or legacy. The tenants have incorporated the Embassy of the Republic of Venice in 1671, then François de Neufville, duc de Villeroi. Later it was seized by the State throughout the French Revolution, while in 1815 it turned into a school, in which Balzac examined the progresses.

Musee Picasso, Paris Reviews - Write a Review
It's a nice museum tucked away in Paris. Right now, the museum is configured to show 1 specific year in his life (1932). It's interesting to see his work change throughout the year. There were 4-5 paintings that I really enjoyed from that period. I would not recommend the audio tour... I would take a guided tour by a docent... they tell a much more complete story about that year in the Picasso's life.
This museum has an excellent and extensive collection of Picasso works including pieces from his personal collection. The gallery spans his entire career and includes information about his live and roommates as well as his inspirations for his artwork. We spent about three hours wondering the exhibits and stopped at the cafe for a light lunch. Overall, it was a great experience and we learned a lot about the life of Picasso.
I was really looking forward to our visit but in truth I wish we had never gone. 2/5 floors were closed off. Why you would close off nearly 50% of you gallery at a time is beyond me. The travelling exhibit that came to Toronto's AGO was far more enjoyable Maybe it would be better with all floors open. Until then save you admission fee for other galleries in the great city of Paris. I highly recommend Rodin Museum or Muse D'Orsay as alternates.
A wonderful museum, even for those who may not care for, or understand Picasso. Go with a guide, or use the headset for information on key pieces. On warmer days, enjoy a meal outdoors.
Amazing museum! Highly recommend this stop if you can fit it into your schedule. Some of Picasso's most famous works can be seen here.
