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 by 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.

I enjoyed learning about the progression of Piscasso’s work and how his personal circumstances influenced the way he designed his artwork. The tour was a great highlight of the major aspects of the museum although it was a bit hard to hear at times due to the other tours happening at the same time. Our guide, Olga, did her best and I did appreciate that our tour group was slit into two to reduce the overall size of the group.

The tour was really good. It was not necessary the skip the line since there was no line at all, but the guide took care of everything. Olga Escribano was our guide and she arrived on time, she explained Picasso's life and every important piece of art, not only from the critics perspective but also taught us how to read art and create our own vision.

I have never been a big fan of Picasso but the tour and guide was very interesting and I enjoyed it. Prior to the tour, it was quite simple to find the tour guide. I say this because finding the meeting point for many tours is like playing a game of hide and seek.
