  • The actual museum isn't laid out very well, but this is still a required visit, and is excellently put together. Together with the audio guide, you get a great view into a great artist's mind and life. There's plenty of space devoted to each picture, with normally around 10 to 20 per room. It's just a bit of a mess to follow around the museum.
  • Great views over the landscape of a lifetime ... and what a lifetime! Wonderful building too. Well laid out. Only thing not clear is that the gaps represent periods when Picasso was elsewhere, such as his time in Paris.
