At the end of October 2014, the Picasso museum in Paris reopened after being closed for 5 years. Visitors can now enjoy over 5.000 of Picasso’s works. But the museum collection does not only comprise paintings and sculptures made by the Spanish artist himself. On display are also 150 works from Picasso’s own art collection, for instance paintings by Matisse, Renoir, Cézanne and others.
The Picasso museum is located in Le Marais, one of my favourite part of Paris, on 5 Rue de Thorigny. Entrance to the Picasso museum is free on every first Sunday of the month. On other days adults pay 11,-, the museum is closed on Mondays.. If you would like to use and audio guide, available in French, English and Spanish, you pay 4,- euro’s extra. Under-18’s can visit the Picasso museum for free.
Interesting fact, all works of art come without an explanatory label. The museum was redesigned with the idea that visitors should just ‘look’. And that is just perfect for a visit with children.
French blogger Tiphaine visited the Picasso museum with her magical trio during the Christmas holidays and declared it totally kids proof!
