It is housed in five adjoining medieval palaces on Montcada Street in the La Ribera neighborhood in the Old City of Barcelona.

Two of his biggest works, First Communion (1896) and Science and Charity (1897), are in the museum’s collection; this early phase of Picasso is prominently represented there. 

Notable is also the collection of 57 pieces from Picasso’s “Las Meninas,” the only series of his that is all on display in a single museum.

The attraction also houses a comprehensive collection of over 4,200 works by Pablo Picasso, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, and more. 

You can see pieces from different stages of the artist’s career, from his early works as a young artist in Barcelona to his later years as a master of modern art.

In addition to Picasso’s works, visitors can also see pieces by other artists who influenced him and works by his contemporaries.

The museum is housed in several interconnected Gothic palaces in the heart of the city, offering visitors a glimpse into Barcelona’s rich history.
