  • Picasso museum is really fantastic. His work is marvelous and breathtaking. You can see his masterpieces in a chronological way. I was surprised with the way he was evolving and finding his unique way to see and express himself. The people who work there are rather bored but helpful.
  • If you can get the free tickets for the first Sunday of every month it's a nice place to pass the time. Tickets are released online about 3 days prior and were easy to get. Otherwise I wouldn't spend money to go unless you are a huge Picasso fan.
