The step into the life of one of the most famous artists.

Lots of brilliant artwork, you are swept away by the story of his life. Picasso had a very interesting time and this museum can tell you all about it.

A museum about Picasso as a man and as an artist, not only an exhibition of his art. I guess the second best you could find outside Spain.

Have to say my average rating is because I realised while in this museum that I am not a great fan of Picasso. But even if I was, I thought the collection was a bit limited and not all that well presented. However, the building itself was quite lovely and this is probably a must for fans. As with many...

Why was this museum closed for so many years with such a disappointing result? The building is in no way improved and the exhibition of Picasso's works is sub-par. Don't waste your time.

Magical plase and it's a must to visit, if you are interested in art, or not so. Good retrospection of Picasso's art.

My husband and I found the museum a good place to visit on a cold, snowy February day. Neither of us are huge Picasso fans, but we found the museum interesting and well organised. While we were unable to see all the works there due to a change of exhibitions, what we did see was quite good and gave us... More

A big disappointment! Hardly any paintings, sculpture or pottery by him. Two floors closed for six weeks so they can change exhibitions. Why it takes so long is a mystery. Just one or two paintings per room but a lot of information or photos of him which is fine but I was hoping to see his stuff to see what... More

We were told when we arrived that the first 2 floors (ground and first) were closed due to hanging of an exhibit. We decided to go anyhow. It was our error.We felt that the Picasso story was incomplete, that you cannot eliminate two floors of exhibits without impacting both the learning and enjoyment experience of the visitor. That being said,... More

This is a very popular museum. It's a little quicker to get in if you book on line. There's disabled access to most of the exhibits. It's wonderfully presented and lit and there are plenty of comfortable benches to sit and enjoy the fabulous art. The only minor disappointment was the cafe which may be more pleasant in better weather.... More

On my visit they had a Picasso and Giacometti exhibit that was very nice. The permanent collection is OK. Information is on the walls of each rooms, that is very good for putting in context what you are seeing. Remember Picasso lived many years and created lots of works in different styles. It is a "small" museum but that is... 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.
