Museo Picasso Malaga Tours

Museo Picasso Malaga, situated in the city of the master’s birth, showcases a collection of more than 200 pieces donated to the museum by Picasso’s family. While the Blue and Rose periods are missing, the collection highlights the artist’s personal side, with works he painted for his family or kept for himself.
 
The Basics
As one of Malaga’s best museums, Museo Picasso features on many sightseeing tours of the city, including guided day trips from Marbella. Those with a special interest in Pablo Picasso can opt for a private guided tour of the museum, which often includes a stop at the artist’s birthplace (Casa Natal), church, and school. Picasso’s first known painting is on display at the nearby Municipal Museum.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum is a must-see for art lovers and history buffs.
  • Bring along a light jacket as the exhibition rooms are kept quite cool.
  • The museum is wheelchair accessible, and staff are available to help at the wheelchair access point.
  • Photography and cellphone usage are both prohibited inside the exhibition rooms of the museum.
 
How to Get There
The Museo Picasso Malaga sits in the city’s historic center near the Alcazaba and the Roman Theatre. It’s easily accessible on foot, but you can also take the public bus to stops at either Paseo del Parque (Ayuntamiento) or Plaza de la Merced.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open daily throughout the year, with extended hours during July and August. If you’re visiting during the summer tourist season, plan to arrive first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds.
 
Architecture and Archaeology
Palacio de Buenavista, the 16th-century building that houses the collection, features a mixture of Mudéjar and Renaissance elements. It was built atop the remains of what was believed to be a Nasrid Palace, where archaeological remains from Phoenician, Roman, and Moorish eras have been uncovered. Some of these remains are now a part of the museum’s permanent collection.
