Full description
Skip the lines and delve into the history and work of Picasso with an expert guide. Explore the formative years of Pablo Picasso and discover the genius of the young artist admiring the 4,251 pieces that make up the permanent collection. Meet the guide at the museum entrance and, after a short explanation, admire the collection and temporary exhibit, providing a thorough chronology of Picasso's development as an artist. Admire work from his early days in Barcelona through his major later periods, visiting masterworks like "Science and Charity", "Royan", and "Las Meninas", a reinterpretation of the Velazquez painting of the same name. The Picasso Museum, opened in 1963, also reveals the artist's deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate relationship that was shaped in his youth and continued until his death. The discussion will finish with a focus on Picasso's contemporaries and his lasting influence on the art world. At the end of the tour, the guide will leave you to continue your exploration at your own pace and will be happy to offer recommendations on other sites of interest.

The museum is more interesting, but visiting it - fantastic thanks to a great guide: OLGA ESCRIBANO. If you are visiting Barcelona, then only with her. He has knowledge, passion and can build tension and stories. By the way, he excellently tells about painting, how to read art. Great guide and man.

Olga was so knowledgeable, so many little facts you wouldn’t find on the descriptions for each painting, and overarching knowledge of each era of Picasso’s work. My sister is a big art buff so she isn’t easily impressed. It was so enjoyable & I hardly noticed time going by as she took us through the museum. She’s so lively and fun, we would definitely recommend her for your next tour!

Olga gave us a wonderful tour! She was so knowledgeable and informative - she made it so much fun - even my teenage girls enjoyed it:) We learnt so much more than if we had just looked round on our own. Thoroughly recommend Olga - we would hope to be lucky enough to have her help us again.
