The Museu Picasso in Barcelona opened in 1963, and has a permanent collection of over 3,800 works that make reference to the early years of Pablo Ruiz Picasso. It also has temporary exhibitions, but it's better to check at the official website of the Museum for more details.
The Malaga-born artist wanted to have his own museum in Barcelona, illustrating the close and inseparable connection that he established during his youth ages in this welcoming city.
The museum occupies five medieval mansions with their courtyards, galleries and staircases well preserved especially in the first three houses (Palau Aguilar, Palau and Palau Baró deCastellet Mecca).
One of the best museums of the city, and probably the best collection of the artist worldwide.
