#2 Musee Picasso
This museum, which hangs nearly 250 of Picasso's works, is actually a former castle, the Château Grimaldi. The artist ventured upon it in 1946 and started using it as his studio – but he also employed his artistic flair to decorating the interior of the rather grim-looking chateau. Although the vast majority of art – including painting, lithographs, ceramics and more – are Picasso's, you can also see works by other contemporary artists, such as Germaine Richier, Joan Miró, Bernard Pagès, Anne and Patrick Poirier.
Most visitors enjoyed the museum (particularly the castle itself), saying the collection is excellent and exquisite, even if it's not as vast as those housed in similar museums in Paris or Barcelona. However, a few say the admission price is too high.
