Picasso loved to say, “Give me a museum and I’ll fill it.” His wish was granted…

The Picasso Museum in Paris has a collection of more than 5000 works (but only 297 are exhibited), and several tens of thousands of archival documents.

The museum is splendidly situated in the extraordinary and extravagant Mansion “Hôtel Salé“, dating from the 17th century.

It possesses the most complete collection in the world of this masterful artist and precursor of numerous artistic movements and it allows a journey through time and styles, by admiring his paintings, his sculptures, his engraved and drawn works.
