Unique collections to discover and rediscover


Some 5,000 works by Pablo Picasso, 200,000 pieces from his personal archives and his exclusive collection of 150 paintings by other artists, including Renoir, Matisse, Cézanne, Le Douanier Rousseau.


The Musée Picasso Paris presents a remarkable testimonial on Picasso and his creative process. The rare diversity of his collections is an invitation to endlessly explore the powerful work of this artist— at once a painter, sculptor, ceramicist, photographer and writer—through a multitude of thematic tours and experiences.


The renovated museum features original exhibition displays, new tours of the collections and fully renovated spaces.



To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the Musée national Picasso-Paris will present a new exhibition, “¡Picasso! L’exposition anniversaire” in the entire museum space in fall 2015. In order to prepare for this event, we will need to close some of the rooms to the public from June 30th 2015, please accept our sincere apologies.


Multimedia guides are available only on booking.
