The Museu Picasso in Barcelona is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the 4,251 works that make up the permanent collection. Furthermore, the Museu Picasso, opened in 1963, also reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate, solid relationship that was shaped in his adolescence and youth, and continued until his death.

The Museum is very rich in regard to work from the formative years in the life of the artist; it is practically exhaustive up to the Blue Period. The Museum also houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series Las Meninas (1957) as well as a comprehensive print collection.

On my first trip to Barcelona, I had to see the Picasso Museum. I was surprised that there were ceramics there and many sketches. It seemed like the museum featured Picasso's early work.

Even if you are not a Picasso fan I think it's worth it. You will see that Picasso was more than abstract. Spent an hour here. Bought tickets online to avoid queues (a must do). The Museo is simple and organised chronologically. Went at the last session 5pm and still had a lot of people waiting in queue. I thoroughly... More

Checked out this jewel for the second time, and still does not disappoint. Long but fast line, and entertainment on the street while waiting. Of course it's better if you book online more than 24 hours before, but we did not mind waiting. Once inside, it showed Picasso's chronological artistry. Well presented exhibits and draws out your spiritual side.

Although this museum doesn't have Picasso's best works, it is still worth the visit. The majority of the pieces were donated by Picasso's wife and one can still spend a few hours seeing the collection that spans decades of his career as well as the various styles/moods he went through.

You can see a lot of the work that Picasso did, different styles of art work and even pottery he made. He was truly an incredible artist.

This is an extremely well arranged and instructive collection. Loads of geat pieces of Picasso are on display with very interesting information about his life and time. There is also a very interesting temporary exhibition about cubism. All together worth going! .

An excellent collection of how the artist evolved through his early years. At the time of writing this, the current Cubism exhibition is worth seeing also which includes other important artists and a good historical perspective.

We found the place to be a bit expensive for the quality of the experience. The museum is nicely organised but too focused on procedures and not on visitors.

This museum focuses on Picasso's early paintings, which include landscape paintings and portraits. There are a few cubist paintings, but his masterpieces are not here. The collection is large, and it takes about 2 hrs to finish the visit. The only thing disappointing is that photography is not allowed inside.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
