Musée Picasso, Paris

I had been wanting to visit the Picasso Museum in Paris for ages but in February, I finally got the chance. Pablo Picasso was an amazing painter and one of the most influential artists of all time. He was born in Spain but spent most of his adult life in France. However, I wasn’t aware, before I visited the museum, that he was also a sculptor and ceramist. I also didn’t know his style of painting varied so much – some of his art was very modern and abstract but a lot was very classic and almost felt like it was another artist.  I was impressed my Picasso’s works but to be honest the museum was a little underwhelming. It was cold and I found it a little disorganized. I think it’s worth a visit to see Picasso’s works but I definitely feel like the museum could have been set up a bit better considering it went through a recent 5 year renovation.

The location of the Picasso museum is right in the centre of Le Marais making the views out the windows look like art too. One of the security guards noticed I was carrying a camera and luckily he tapped me on my shoulder and pointed out that that the Sacré-Coeur and Eiffel Tower were both visible out another window so I could take some pictures. Overall, I think if you have some spare time there is no harm in visiting this museum but I wouldn’t prioritise it as I believe there are many more amazing museums in Paris.
