When you feel like you've hit your Gaudí limit, head to the Picasso Museum (Museu Picasso) for a change of pace. While most people know Pablo Picasso for his distorted portraits, this museum displays his work on a timeline of sorts, allowing you to follow his progression from the more controlled works of his early years to the very whimsical paintings and sculptures from the end of his career. Make sure you dedicate plenty of time to Picasso: the museum itself holds several thousand pieces by him, including works from his famous Blue Period. The museum also explores the artist's lifelong relationship with Barcelona, explaining why he chose the city for his museum before he died.
Travelers highly recommend a visit to the Picasso Museum, even if you aren't much into Picasso or art museums in general. Visitors appreciated the way the museum chronicled the art he created throughout his life. Not only that, but seeing his various styles on display made lots of travelers understand and further appreciate his talent after visiting the museum. The only complaint some had about the museum were the crowds. Visitors suggest getting tickets online in advance to avoid lines and visiting right when the museum opens or just prior to closing.
For 11 euros (or approximately $12.50) you can visit the Picasso Museum. Opening hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Thursdays, the museum is open till 9:30 p.m. However, if you visit on Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m., or anytime on the first Sunday of each month, admission is free.
