So interesting and well put together. I spent several hours in here admiring and learning about Picasso and his work. If art appeals to you I would highly recommend!

This is my favorite museum in all of Barcelona. Before you go make sure to check the hours as I tried one day when it was closed. The paintings are beautiful and breathtaking leaving you wondering how Picasso created each piece so uniquely.

The museum is good for those who love art, but the exhibit does not contain Picasso's best art. I enjoyed it the most when there was a separate portrait exhibit

Wonderful collection of Picasso's earlier work. Definitely worth the admission, it's free once a week but you can also buy an articket and it grants you admission to this and 5 other museums.

For the price you see plenty even though it's a small museum. You see different paintings and drawings for The different times in Picasso's life every thing is well explain. I recommend taking your tickets online before going.

If you are a student and show your ID, entrance is free! Take the opportunity to look at all of his work. Even the 7-10€ charge is worth it.

I liked it but I think there are far better museums in Barcelona if you are only coming visit for a week.

This museum has a great collection spanning Picasso's career and development as an artist. While many of his most famous works are housed elsewhere, this museum has a lot of great prices, including an amazing collection of his study of 'Las Meninas'. Insider tips: (1) book online well in advance - people without tickets waited in line for hours, we walked right in (2) get the audio guide - there is very little written near the paintings to explain what you are looking at.

When we went, the Picasso Museum it had a neat exhibit comparing and contrasting the work of Dali and Picasso. The museum is housed in an old mansion which is fun to wander around. It didn't take us too long to go through the entire museum since it's fairly compact. One of my favorite pieces in the museum was the portrait Picasso did of Jaume Sabartés in the Ruff and Hat (#38). Dali's portrait of Picasso was pretty interesting too.

I love modern art so heading to the Picasso Museum, for me, is a must see. It houses over 3500 creations by the artist--the largest collection of his works in the world; most are from the early period of his life (prepare to see a lot of blue). It's also located inside adjoining Medieval palaces, which makes it an especially cool place to wander through.

Loved this museum! It was pouring outside and we waited outside but it was worth it. Although it is very specialized to Picasso's work, I suspect most art lovers would enjoy it.

This is a museum of a great number of Picasso's works. It focuses on telling the story of Picasso's life, which can be seen through the evolution of his work. Even if you are not a huge art buff, it's still interesting and worth seeing.

A must for visitors to Barcelona who appreciate fine art and history. Worth any wait, and affordable as far as attractions go.

After arriving in Barcelona (via Train from Girona) and checking into our Hotel, the first thing Gayle wanted to do was visit the Museu Picasso. I was game, as I was still feeling the amazement after seeing Guernica Painting a few weeks earlier at the Reina Sofia in Madrid. Plus, this place is arguably the best collection in Spain of Picasso's work. And since he spent is formative years (14-21) in Barcelona, it's the best collection of his early works anywhere.

I was initially disappointed that the Museu Picasso is a bit short of his works during the time of the Spanish Civil War. In some ways that's not surprising as Picasso vowed to never again set foot in Spain while Franco was alive. And since he died before that, Pablo never saw the great exhibit that his personal secretary (Jaume Sarbetes) spent years putting together (with Picasso's long distance help).

This handsome building and displays of Picasso's early years were well worth the price of admission. It's all scattered through several palatial room over 2 floors. Gayle would tell you that I gravitated too fast to the "nudes" such as the "Dos Figuras y Un Gato" piece, but I was intrigued throughout, especially regarding some of his childhood works and the Blue Period.

As with other key Spanish museums, photography is frowned upon, backpacks need to go in the Locker, and the gift shop offers lots of options. There was a line to get in, but it moved quickly. Museu Picasso was also one of the few places where my credit card didn't work and which the staff wasn't very nice about it. They warn you about credit card fraud in Barcelona, but in this case it was apparently just a fluke with their machine.

Well hidden in the old town of Barcelona. For proper viewing or for a designated admirer plan at least half a day there. Majority of works on show are from the early years so for anybody just going for the sake of *having gone to the Picasso museum*, it's not worth it.

I am not the biggest Picasso fan. However, this museum is a treat. The number of early Picasso sketches are very interesting and gives an interesting and at times intimate look into the mind of this great artist

Though I studied art history in school and appreciated Picasso, his work had never been on my list of favorites until I visited this museum. Seeing some of Picasso's early pieces - especially those drawn by him as a mere child, blew me away. His humorous doodles were hilarious and his more famous pieces were, obviously, a delight to see in person. The museum left me with a much better understanding and appreciation for Picasso's work as an artist.
