    You won't find the most famous Picasso paintings here but the museum is very nice. It has paintings from all his years that help the guest follow the changes in his style and see his work as a whole.

    If you're looking for the artwork that you know of as PICASSO, this isn't the museum for you. This has a large collection of his art before his fame and a handful from Blue Period. Good 2 hour visit.

    Don't expect to come here and see Picasso's iconic work and style. A lot is focused on his very early works, and some late (before his death) pieces. I suggest coming early to avoid long entry line

    Probably my favourite museum in Barna. Even though it offers free access on Sunday, it's worth to pay for your ticket and get a chance to see it when it's calm. It does get quite busy.

    Amazing museum! Reserve at least 2 hours to check all the rooms. Audioguide loaded with cool info. Loved it! You can leave your backpack at the locker room for one euro.

    Probably best to buy your tickets in advance to avoid the wait on line. Tickets are reserved for specific times. Don't be late!

    At least on the first Sunday of each month when entrance is free (!), prepare yourself for a long queue. It can take 40-90 minutes to get in, so manage your time. Workday is over @19:50. It's worthy!

    This is where you'll find a wide selection of works of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. The permanent collection includes Man in a Beret and Mountain Landscape. Open Tuesdays-Sundays, 10am-8pm.

    It's well set out and there is a fair amount of his work. If you're after any of his more famous works, you won't them here. 1st Sunday of the month you get in free.
  • Mariana T.
    Very well located, easily you can spend a day with the exposition. Also the building that hosts the museum is amazing.

    Free on the first Sunday of every month but there will be a huge line, so be there early. Little hard to navigate inside. If a couple, one audio guide is enough.

    You can't take photos nor use your mobile phone. I felt there were large gaps missing from the timeline. Many interpretations of (parts of) Diego Velázquez' Las Meninas. I prefer Paris' Musée Picasso.

    Amazing building which in itself is worth seeing. Great exhibit of his early work. Worth seeing!!! its related to the time which Picasso spent in Barcelona.

    If you are near to Museo Picasso, you are in the Born quarter. After visiting the museum, you can relax in one of the many terraces and enjoy good tapas.

    I've never been a huge Picasso fan, but this museum shows there's so much more than what you think of as Picasso. The evolution work from his teens is incredible

    Rather early paintings and little explanation given.. I'd recommend rather get yourself a book on picassos oevre ans go visit your favorite cafe😉

    Kind of a must-see when in Spain but I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't much work from the 20s-40s, his surrealism glory days. Still lots of great early Picasso. Go early, it gets busy.

    Come for his early works, drawings, and more obscure pieces, but don't expect to see any iconic Picassos.

    Avoid the long queues by buying an Articket BCN pass from the Tourist Office in Plaça de Catalunya. You'll need to redeem the voucher they give you at a museum, the closest being CCCB.

    A popular attraction, the museum is less crowded in the morning hours. Trendy shops dot El Born, the Medieval-era neighborhood close to the Picasso Museum.

    Free on Sundays after 3pm if you feel like waiting in a crazy long line. I'd pay the €11 online and skip the line!

    It is better to buy tickets online in advance because there is a limit of people going inside and you may not be able to buy the ticket for an immediate entrance

    A good way to understand the becoming of the artist, with a fair share of representative works on display. Not ultra famous, but enveloping.

    Small in size but has beautiful artwork and even features some Dali! Free with a student card!

    The collection includes a lot of studies and sketches Pablo used to prepare for his works, and seeing the progression from idea to finished product is fascinating.

    Get there very early, Tuesday to Sundays (including holidays): 9am to 7pm or buy tickets on line (at least one day before) to avoid the huge waiting line.

    Look out for the displays outside that show the number of tickets available along the queues. There's a limited number of entries (unless you have the Articket BCN pass).

    one word: Picasso....of course, not many of his famous works, but there are his early works, Blue period and some from Cubism...

    Pretty small, but amazing room full of his take on Velazquez's Las Meninas. Free on Sundays after 3, line is scary long but goes quickly!

    Do not expect to see masterpieces but good to see Picasso's artistic development and talent. Las Meninas series is particularly impressive.
