What to see in the Picasso Museum ?

Picasso and Barcelona: The Genesis of a Genius

Born in 1881 in Malaga, Pablo Ruiz Picasso spent his entire youth in Spain. In 1891, his father was a teacher at the drawing school "La Coruna". At the age of 8, he already practiced drawing and painting. In 1895 the family moved to Barcelona, his father taught at the School of Llotja (the Lodge) named at the time: "Higher School of Arts, Industry and Fine Arts". Thanks to his father, Picasso, only 14 years old, can exceptionally pass the entrance exam. A true prodigy, he was immediately admitted.

The young Pablo is admitted to the Llotja School having performed in one day the subject of the examination for which candidates are usually given one month...

The school's teaching is very academic, Picasso very quickly and perfectly masters drawing and classical painting. Two years later, he competed at the Royal Academy of Madrid. Its success is as striking as in Barcelona. At 16, Picasso has reached the highest artistic level of the best art schools in Spain.At the age of 19, he exhibited for the first time in Barcelona, in the artistic tavern of the "4 Gats" and left for Paris. But he will keep a deep attachment to this city where he will come back many times.

The Permanent Collection

The museum was created in 1963 on the idea of poet Jaime Sabartés, friend and private secretary of Pablo Picasso, when he donated his collection of the master's canvases to the city. When Jaume Sabartés died in 1968, Picasso completed this collection by offering the Meninas series and the blue portrait of Sabartés to the museum in 1901. In 1970 he donated another 920 paintings. Jacqueline Roque, Picasso's last wife and muse, made two important donations to the museum in the 1980s: 40 ceramics and 117 engravings.

Show more

The collection has since been completed over the years by donations from private collectors and galleries and by acquisitions from the City of Barcelona, including many photographs.

The artist signed his first works Ruiz-Picasso before choosing P.R.-Picasso and then definitively Picasso in 1901!

The visit to the museum traces the artist's journey from 1890 to 1917 in chronological order. Among the emblematic paintings in this collection you will discover:

Self-portrait of Picasso in 1896, he was only 15 years old then!

The blue portrait of Jaume Sabartés (1901)

Harlequin (1917)


Room 13, dedicated to the Menins, is certainly the most remarkable of this museum.

A great admirer of Diego Velázquez's work, Picasso re-interpreted in 1957 the famous painting "Las Meninas" painted in 1656 in a series of 58 paintings.

The series - “Les Ménines, les Demoiselles d'honneur"  - preserved in its entirety at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona is the only complete series by the artist that has remained in one place. This is a very extensive study that consists of 45 cubist interpretations of the work, 9 scenes of a dove, 3 landscapes, and a portrait of Jacqueline.

Temporary exhibitions

Do not miss temporary exhibitions such as the one on "Picasso in Barcelona in 1917" and the only collection of vintage photographs of Picasso by Lucien Clergue, an acquisition of the museum in 2017.

    Yes, there are discounts for seniors. When you fill out the purchase form, after the date and time of your visit, several ticket prices are displayed depending on the age of the visitor. Senior citizens - especially with the basic skip the line ticket - benefit from a discount.

  • Is it true that the Picasso Museum is free for people under 18, all year round?

    Yes, indeed, the Picasso Museum is free for people under 18 all year round. It is one of the few museums in Barcelona that practices this policy of opening cultural places to young people.

Tickets FAQ - All about your tickets to visit Barcelona

We are totally at your service to help you with any questions you may have before or after purchasing your ticket. Problems receiving your ticket? A question before you buy? We answer you within the day, all year round!


Contact us: ticketing@barcelona.com and specify your name, first name, order number if you have it and remind us your email - the same email as your order - to facilitate the processing of your file. 

  • What does a 100% mobile ticket mean?

    A 100% mobile ticket simply means that your ticket - which you will receive by email just after your purchase - will be - in its electronic form (PDF) - sufficient to enable you to make your visit with your smartphone or tablet. All you have to do is present it at the checkpoint. A simple scan will allow you to make your visit.

  • Can I print my ticket?

    You can of course print your ticket if you don't have a smartphone, a tablet or if you simply prefer this option. Upon receipt of the confirmation email, simply print the PDF of the ticket. Then just present your printed ticket at the checkpoint.

  • What does a 100% skip the line ticket mean?

    A 100% skip the line ticket means that the ticket in question allows you to enter the place you want to visit in Barcelona without queuing, for example at the ticket office. All you have to do is present your ticket directly at the entrance. This way, you won't lose any time on your day of discovery.

  • What's included with this ticket?

    On this same page or on the ticket reservation page - the services included with the purchase of your ticket are systematically indicated. See the "Included" or “Inclusions” section for details.

  • Why do I have to specify a date when buying a ticket?

    When you are asked to specify the date of your visit, it is because the monument or service you have chosen to visit also requests it. Most of the time, this date allows tourist sites to limit the number of visitors and therefore to make the visits more fluid. Please note that if you are not asked to specify the time of your visit, this means that you can arrive at any time to visit the site - while respecting the visiting hours of the site in question.

  • Why do I have to specify a date and time when purchasing a ticket?

    Same as before, but here in addition to the date - the monument or service you have chosen to visit - also asks you to specify the time you wish to visit. Once again it is a matter of limiting the number of visitors so that your visit is as pleasant as possible.

  • With a ticket - date and time requested - do I have to arrive at the exact time or can I be a little late for my visit?

    On the ticket that you will receive by email after your purchase, it is normally specified how much time - in addition to the scheduled time - you are granted in order not to lose your visit. Please note, for example, that a visit to Park Güell entitles you to entry 30 minutes after the stated time. The Sagrada Familia ticket indicates a time slot of 15 minutes. It is therefore important to respect this time slot. If the ticket does not specify a time slot, then the timetable must be respected.

  • Why are we talking about combined tickets?

    We talk about combined tickets in some of our offers when they offer, for example, two places to visit in Barcelona. The ticket itself is not combined. It is two separate tickets that we combine to make a more economical and attractive offer. You will receive these two tickets by email. As they are separate you can use them according to your preference when the tickets are open or according to the dates and times you choose.

  • How to benefit from a discount for example according to age or for students?

    When purchasing your ticket, discounts are always indicated when available. For example, there are regular discounts for children in different age groups, ranging from free for very young children to discounts for seniors over 65 years of age. Discounted tickets for students are indicated in the same way. 

    Don't forget your proof of discounts - identity card, student card... - to be shown during your visit to Barcelona.

  • What are the means of payment for the tickets?

    To pay online your tickets to visit Barcelona, are accepted the classic means of payment used worldwide such as:  Visa, Mastercard, Alipay, iDeal, GiroPay or Paypal.

  • What is the difference between tours and tickets?

    The difference between tours and tickets is that both types of tickets allow you to visit the main monuments of the city with a guide who speaks your language for the tours (or guided tours) or by yourself with the tickets. You can find the guided tours and tickets in our section: Barcelona Tours
