It is a pity that it keeps closing on Mondays even in high season and that, 10 minutes before 6 pm, the workers begin to approach to remember that you have to get out soon: if you have little time, focus on the garden for the panorama and on the third floor for the work of Pica (to the other two levels, paintings and sculptures by other artists). Even worse, once you have finished the itinerary in a hurry, you find the shop with the doors already barred: why not enhance more tourists attentive to art and history, making them feel welcomed rather than as a burden?
Musee Picasso located in Chateau Grimaldi within the Old Town could easily be found. Enty fee to the museum was necessary and advance booking for time-slot assigned would be useful. Apart from the art... more »
This review is for the museum itself, not Picasso's work. I don't think I'll understand his work ever. It's good, I just don't know. The museum was wonderful. Staff was helpful and nice. The layout worked pretty well and there was a lot more to see than I thought there would be. There is also an area on top where you can get a great view of the Sea. I can see why this place inspired such great artists.
This is a serious gallery, so only worth visiting if you want to learn stuff. Take advantage of multi-entry with the ticket, and especially the adjacent archaeological museum and it's hypocaust. Get back down the hill and the military museum, also included, is fantastic. Please remember this museum is also a war memorial and that Napoleon is a respected historical figure here. If you walk there from the centre, be prepared for a long climb.
