We were very pleasantly surprised by how beautiful and large the collection of Picasso’s works are in this museum. The museum itself is well lit, very organized and displays Picasso’s works to perfection. Our entrance fee was 12.5 € each and was definitely worth every...More

After our first visit in 2014 a week before the museum was closed we finally were able to return in 2018 to see the renovations. The spaces are now more open and expansive. The collection includes less seen works ie. a wall size collage, early...More

Set in the chic Maree district, this is a great intro to his remarkably-varied oeuvre and to his incredibly fertile mind. There are drawings, illustrated books, pre-Cubism works showing his great talent with line, and then of course Cubism as it evolved. Also letters and...More

Advance tickets/museum pass doesn't do a lot of good as you still have to go to the info desk and get tickets printed, then to the other end of the counter to get the audio guides. It was not very clear how to proceed. Once...More

Nice out off the ordinary tourists’ museums visits. I don’t like getting caught in massive visits, so this is the plan for me. Nice museum, at Le Marais, nice temporary exhibition on Picasso’s paintings and sculptures. A more personal approach. This exhibition is temporary, so...More

I come here to enjoy the atmosphere of this exquisite mansion from the Renaissance. Now a museum showing some of Picasso's works. Not a huge collection, but significant.

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

Once you get inside the building there are elevators. But the path leading up to the museum entrance is uneven and you might need assistance to make sure the wheels get over the little steps and cobblestones.

You guessed right. The best plan is to skip the Picasso Museum. They've wrecked it with a crazy modern remodellling scheme and there are very few works by Picasso in the place, even when all the levels are open.
