History

The Museu Picasso is a museum located in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, which has its focus laid on the early life of Picasso. By Picasso's own request, it was built and opened during his life time.

The first stock of the collection of the museum was initialised through a donation by a friend of Picasso and his secretary. They gave almost all of their private Picasso collection of early works to the city of Barcelona.

Exhibition

This is why one can nowadays admire especially much of the early artwork by Picasso in the museum. The artworks exhibited date back up to the year of 1904. Due to a donation by Picasso himself, many of his later paintings are now exhibited, too.

Building

In the beginning, the building consisted of a single building at the Carrer de Montcada. Through the constant growth of the museum's collection, the four adjacent city palaces were integrated into the museum. Nowadays, the museum consists of the five city palaces altogether exhibiting more than 4,000 Picasso artworks. 

How to get there

The museum lies in the centre of Barcelona located at the Carrer de Montcada.

By car:

Mind that there are no car parks at the museum. However, you will find space to store your car at the Carrer Princesa, Passeig del Born/ Plaça Comercial, Plaça de la Catedral, Avinguda Cambó and Via Laietana.
