Museo Picasso Málaga: Ticket & Audioguide

1. Museo Picasso Málaga: Ticket & Audioguide

The Museo Picasso Málaga was created in response to the artist's desire for his work to be exhibited in the city of his birth in 1881. Its realization is thanks to the combined efforts of the artist´s daughter-in-law and grandson, whose donations provide the body of the art collection, and Junta de Andalucía, who arranged an ambitious project devoted to the artist. Located in the Palacio de Buenavista, declared a National Monument in 1939, the Museo Picasso Málaga opened in the heart of Málaga in 2003. The building boasts a harmonic mix of Renaissance and Mudéjar elements and serene contemporary lines. Phoenician, Roman, and Arabic ruins can be found on the underground floor. This ticket provides access to the permanent collection containing examples of Picasso's revolutionary innovations. See paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, and graphic work, from his first academic studies to his personal Neoclassical perspective. Admire Picasso's overlapping Cubist forms, his experiments in ceramics, his interpretations of the Old Masters, and his last paintings from the 1970s. Break for a snack in the garden Café of the Palacio de Buenavista, a perfect place to end your visit with an appetizer, lunch, or a drink.

Nice experience at the Picasso museum in Malaga, easy to order tickets and then we jumped past all the others in the queue

We loved the puzzles, the tour of the city and the use of the IPad. A great experience for big and small.

Travelling alone so was a great way to get a ticket and it was quicker than joining the normal queue.

No waiting for access. Museum very nice. Booking via GetyourGuide worked without any problems.
