Ths was our 2nd trip to the Picasso Museum. The changes are wonderful. They kept a few of the cave-like walls, which I like. The art, of course, is Picasso. Definitely stop by.

On our last day in Paris on a Sat my friend and I attempted to visit the Picasso Museum. Unfortunately with the winding streets and the poor signing for the museum we got lost. We had to ask for directions a couple of times when the intersection at streets no longer showed the direction sign for the museum. We arrived... More

We purchased tickets online where it said the first floor was closed to set up an exhibit. We purchased three tickets unaware our 17 year old was free. When we arrived at the museum, both the first and second floors were closed and they could not refund our son's ticket because the museum is apparently separate from the website. The... More

Due to time of day and distance to walk from Metro, I had enough time to go to this museum or the Pompidou. Chose this and wished I hadn't. When I got there, I was told 2 of 4 floors were closed but the entry price was not lowered. I would be allowed to come back for free when the... More

Don't visit. 11 euros wasted. There's a few paintings, a film of a ballet Picasso designed for, some prints - repeated on 2 floors, and some photos, plus some paintings by other artists Picasso owned. Everything is white walks. A dismal experience.

Lots to see, including Picasso's less known collages and sculptures. The building makes it all much more interesting to visit, and with a few other painters and some photographs, it's possible to understand the man a lot more.

We visited this museum last summer, wishing to see the results of the reinstallation of collection and the renovation of this sumptuous building that dates to the 17th century, the latter is classified as a National Historic Monument. A remarkable juxtaposition between the modern style of the art and the building occurs as one goes through the galleries, landings, and... More

I have to reiterate what another reviewer said: "it's just barely an exaggeration to say there's nothing here." At 12 euros a head, my boyfriend and I both felt kinda scammed. Not many original pieces and felt more like a history museum about Picasso's life.

We visited today on March 5. I wish that we had read Linblatt's review from a few days ago before we went. My wife and I were saying it was amazing how few major items this museum had, contrary to what we remembered. We tried to explain it away by saying that most of his famous stuff are in NYC... More

We ended up here much by accident (we hadn't realised Le Louvre was closed on Tuesday's, we'd had a couple of glasses of wine and this was closer that Musee D'Orsay..) but it was an enjoyable stroll around. Good to note - if you have a european citizens card (a driving license will do) and you're under the age of... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
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 people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
