Whether you’re already a fan or have yet to become acquainted with Pablo Picasso’s genius, a trip to the Barcelona Picasso Museum should definitely be on your list of things to do in Barcelona. Venture into the maze-like streets of the historic Borne neighborhood and get inspired at one of the city’s most famous art museums.


Home to one of the most comprehensive permanent collections in the world with over 3,500 pieces, you will get a real feeling for Pablo Picasso’s formative years and artistic development. The museum’s permanent collection includes an extensive collection of paintings, engravings, lithographs and ceramics from this time period, mainly leading up until 1917, that sparks curiosity and invites discussion. Pore over sketches from his early years, feast your eyes on pieces from the Blue Period (1901-1904), and soak in all 58 paintings from Las Meninas series (1957). Some other highlights are the First Communion (1896), Science and Charity (1897), and Harlequin (1917).

A trip to the Picasso Museum is perfect for sharing a unique and educational experience with your family or friends. It provides a glimpse into the legendary artist’s beginnings and a feeling for the bohemian Barcelona where he honed his skills. It will give you a whole new level of understanding of the city as you continue wandering its intriguing streets.

You can also enjoy the temporary exhibition, which changes every 3 or 4 months. There are guided tours for both collections at the weekends (except August), as well as an audio guide that you can hire for 5€.


You’ll step off the narrow Montcada Street into a courtyard, then up an outside stairway leading to the main floors to discover Picasso’s world. As the permanent collection has grown over the years, so has the museum, resulting in all of this delectable artwork being housed in five different palaces. Built in the 13th and 14th centuries, the medieval buildings are a great example of Catalan Gothic architecture. Make sure to pick up a map on your way in; it will help you plan your visit!


Due to there being over a million visits to the museum per year, tickets are only available 48 hours in advance. Please use the calendar to pick a date and time. In the event that there is overbooking we will contact you with alternative dates and times or we’ll give you a full refund.
