Museu Picasso

Museu Picasso

The Museu Picasso is housed in five Catalan-Gothic-style palazzos dating from the 13th and 14th centuries, and opened to the public in 1963. It is now an essential museum for anyone wanting to find out about the artist's formative years.

The museum shows the solid bond between the Malaga-born genius and the city of Barcelona. The permanent collection comprises over 3,800 works from different periods, but with particular emphasis on works from his formative years and youth. The Museum Picasso also features the extraordinary Las Meninas series, works from the Blue Period, as well as an extensive programme of exhibitions which complement the permanent collections.

The museum is embarking on a new phase of expansion with the launch of new programmes and activities designed to make it a key centre for fostering knowledge and education, encouraging visitor participation and a critical approach. The museum seeks to provide a space for dialogue, offering new perspectives on Picasso and the collection as a whole.
