The Musée Picasso in Paris has an incredible collection of over five thousand works of art. Dedicated to one of the most well-known artists of the 20th century, this spectacular old hôtel particulier is filled to the brim with iconic modern masterpieces by Pablo Picasso - as well as works that he collected. This ticket gives you skip-the-line access to a 17th century Parisian mansion to explore the legacy of an artistic genius. Pop into Picasso.
Pablo Picasso is one of the most iconic figures in art of the 20th century. The Spanish painter, sculptor and graphic artist is known for his inventive techniques and versatile style in avant-garde Europe.
Picasso used materials in a way that had never been used before, inspiring artists who came after to follow in his paintsteps. His singular style inspired movements such as Futurism and Dadaism. And this museum showcases the artist’s fantasies and output spanning his extraordinary life. It also includes unseen photographs of the artist himself. And works of other artists from Picasso's private collection - including pieces by Cézanne, Degas, and Matisse.
This museum is housed in the Hôtel Salé - a building that has been described as one of the most extravagant grand homes of the 17th century. It was renovated and reopened in October 2014 with double the exhibition space and new reception areas.
In the same way that Picasso reveled in mixing his media and creating new styles from old ways of working, this stately mansion is a perfect setting to experience some of the world's most groundbreaking modern painting, sculpture, and prints.

How to use your ticket

Suitcases, travel bags and backpacks aren't allowed in the museum. These can't be left in the cloakroom.
Even the attendants were astonished ...
Slick way of doing paperless tickets
Despite two of the five floors being closed (no warning and no refund!), we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
The museum is in need of an experienced team of curators and ample connection of other Picassos work and life with the holding of the museum to make it as unique as it is being claimed. Multimedia, large and well done images to connect the pieces elsewhere and the holding is a good first step.
