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.

This was a fascinating insight into his early life and realised he was a great artist even though not always sure about some of his later pieces. By seeing the growth in his skill it made me look at his later work in a new way. It was absolutely fascinating and worth allowing considerable time for the visit. He had... More

I absolutely loved this museum, and it was easily one of my favorite stops on my trip. Picasso's early works are so inspiring and beautiful, and it felt like I was tearing my eyes away from one beautiful piece to only be awe-struck by the next.

Pablo Picasso once said: "As a child, I learned to paint like an adult, but it was only as an adult, that I learned to paint like a child". And so begins the journey into Picasso's early life told in his sombre, dark paintings and drawings at the age of 14 and ending with his very colourful, deceptively simple paintings... More

This museum takes you through the evolution of Picasso's art. The collection is massive! Do get the audio guide - it's very helpful. Also, book online and don't waste precious time queueing. Photo was taken around 11am.

This was a the first time I have seen any Picasso art work in real life, coming from studying art previously and of course Picasso being mentioned a few few times, it was almost a dream for me to see, there was a large collection of work ranging from his initial and I felt the arrangement and layout of the...

Picasso has always been one of my favorite artists, and so I was already very excited to take a look at this exhibition. Museo Picasso expertly guides through the painter's life, starting with his early student work and progressing though his evolution in to cubism and all things abstract. You won't see Picasso's most well-known works here, but you will... More

This museum is free on the first Sunday of the month or after 3pm on any Sunday. It is located in several restored medieval buildings. The core of the collection comes from the donations of a few people, as a result it is a slice of his diverse and creative output, not a representative sampling. The first few rooms do... More

As part of a city break, my wife and I visited the Museu Picasso. It cost €11 per person entrance fee. It was a very interesting collection of his work - especially seeing how through the years he went through difference phases. Also, seeing multiple paintings of the same view/subject and how he played around with interpretation and colours etc... More

This seems to be one of the staples in the Gothic Quarter (for good reason), so be sure to arrive early in order to skip the lines. Also check in advance about tickets -- I believe they are free on Sundays. The museum is nicely laid out in terms of each individual gallery, but navigating between them is slightly confusing....

If you are looking to find a background to Picasso's life then come take a look. However if you are wanting to see some of his more well known works then you will be disappointed because they are not here.

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.
