What to Expect

Opened in 1963, the museum was worldwide the first dedicated to the artist’s work and illustrates Picasso’s close relationship to the city of Barcelona. Today among the most visited art museums of the world, it is housed in five medieval town houses in Barcelona's La Ribera with a permanent collection that comprises more than 4,000 works, including paintings and drawings, engravings, and ceramics.  

The museum’s permanent collection centres around Picasso’s early years between 1890 and 1917, representing the most comprehensive record of the artist's beginnings. The exhibition displays works from his training period, the Blue period and works in Barcelona from 1917, including two of his first major works, ‘The First Communion’ and ‘Science and Charity’.
