Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
The Picasso Museum occupies the stately Hotel Salé in the historic Marais district of Paris, France. This 17th-century mansion is considered to be one of the finest historic houses in Marais and is now home to over 5,000 works and many more archived pieces belonging to Pablo Picasso. Making up this collection are thousands of paintings, sketches, studies, sculptures, drafts, notebooks, photographs, illustrated books and films and documents that showcase the artist’s creative process.
Situated over three levels, the exhibitions are laid out in a manner that allows you to chronologically understand Picasso’s artistic intentions, marvel at his experiments, uncover the hidden clues in his works and even take a look at paintings from other artists that Picasso admired. Picasso once said, "I am the greatest collector of Picassos in the world", referencing an enormous collection of works that he kept all his life. This collection, along with his masterpieces and artworks from his personal collection make up a one-of-a-kind collection of art that is a must-see for everyone visiting Paris.

The last time I was in Paris I missed out on so many important museums because I ended up wasting time in queues. This time I was prepared and booked all the tickets on headout. The tickets to the Picasso museum itself are worth it.
I could spend hours at the Picasso Museum but this time around I was on a tight schedule and couldn’t waste a single moment. I bought the priority access tickets online and saved at least half hour and spent it in the museum.
The booking on the website is easy and quick. I got a fast confirmation and didn’t have to keep worrying about tickets while in Paris.
