  • This museum explores Picasso and his works from his young age. It does not have his major works in it. We appreciated it for the background it provided.

  • Make sure to buy tickets in advance and to book a slot! If you’re going during the touristy season like I did, you could wait up to 30 minutes in line to get in but it is absolutely worth the try. It costs around 17€ for an all inclusive ticket plus 90 minutes audio guide. Alternatively, you can book a guided tour. There’s plenty to see, beautiful building, and a big gift store that has anything you need from a museum gift store. All in all, definitely a recommended activity if you’re into art.
  • While you may think all of the good Picasso’s are elsewhere in more well known museums, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona is still well worth a stop on your stay. The museum is curated very well and contains a breadth of work that catalogues his early life and evolution in a way that I left knowing more about the artist and the art. A wonderful collection, and beautiful museum.
