Musee Picasso - Picasso Museum, Paris: 40 reviews and 96 photos

The Musee Picasso is a great Paris Museum and isn't so large and crowed like the Louvre. The collection includes a lot from Picasso's personal collection. Picasso once said "I am the greatest collector of Picassos in the world." He had amassed an enormous collection of his own work by the time of his death in 1973, ranging from sketchbooks to finished masterpieces. This one of the few collections of Picasso's work after he turned 70. The Musée Picasso contains more than 3000 different art works by Pablo Picasso including drawings, ceramics and paintings. I really enjoy the sculptures and ceramics, I hadn't seen much of Picasso besides painting. He is truley an art genius, and the museum is well worth the trip and admission. The prices were very reasonable, as far as Paris goes. This momument to art contains a variety of Picasso you well never get to see anywhere else, SEE THIS MUSEUM.

Check out the Pictures and get a little preview of the collection.
