Not many of his early virtuoso works from 1901 which I wanted to see. So if you are fond of the "Yo, Picasso" painting, don't expect to find similar works here. A lot of blue period and loads of cubism. Go, if that works for you. The museum is nicely situated in Marais. You can approach it from the Saint... More

We were interested in visiting this museum after visiting the Picasso museum in Barcelona. It was equally worthwhile and was not redundant. The museum itself is in a gorgeous building.There is plenty to do near the museum as well.

This is a great museum to see while visiting Marais. The building is gorgeous and well kept. Picasso's different stages can be best understood with the audio and app they offer (free of charge)

We stopped here in the Marais for about 1-2 hours. The material is well and easily presented floor by floor and room by room. Each section tells a high level story of Picasso's relationship with his wife Olga and his son Paul and shows his work in relation to each at different points in his life. It is a different... More

The building is amazing, the location in the Marais is perfect and there is a nice cute little garden where you can relax in the sun. I was a bit disappointed but the diversity of the collection but I still enjoyed visiting it. Maybe the next exhibition on the calendar will be richer.

You can see more of Picasso's well known art at museums throughout the world, but here you get a view of his family life and the works that held more value for him from his personal collection. Displays of family photos and narratives give greater insight to his art as well.

My teenage daughter and I visited early one morning of our recent trip. This exhibit exceeded expectations. Very thoughtfully explains the evolution of their relationship and his self image over time providing depth to my understanding of his imagery in later works. Worth the visit.

I went very soon after the museum first opened and found it compelling and fresh. My only recommendation is to purchase tickets ahead or get there very early so as to avoid standing in line on popular days (the free first Sunday or holidays/weekends).

First of all, the Olga Picasso exhibition that is currently on view is a smash hit. Reviews from actual art experts can be found with a quick Google search, but to my trained non-expert eye, it is clear that this exhibition was carefully selected and curated to make a very direct point and it does a great job of doing...

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.
