  • A very small, expensive place for the exhibition quality of figures and all are reproductions. I've seen better temporary exhibitions, with fossilized material and better explanations. If you've not seen anything of this kind can get you the attention by replicas of animals, but they are very bonded, and they do not explain anything. I see it rather directed to children are amazed. It did not provide me anything new.

  • I went with my 2 children and received treatment was humiliating. The Museum is very small and this very bad care. NOT RECOMMENDED!

  • Picasso museum is really fantastic. His work is marvelous and breathtaking. You can see his masterpieces in a chronological way. I was surprised with the way he was evolving and finding his unique way to see and express himself. The people who work there are rather bored but helpful.
  • If you can get the free tickets for the first Sunday of every month it's a nice place to pass the time. Tickets are released online about 3 days prior and were easy to get. Otherwise I wouldn't spend money to go unless you are a huge Picasso fan.
