Directions to Museo Picasso
The museum has received well over 4 million visits to date, and over 40 temporary exhibitions. It is housed in the Palacio de Buenavista, originally constructed in the latter half of the 16th Century. The current building was adapted in 1997 from the much smaller gallery that had been there since 1961, and saw 18 adjoining old houses of the ancient Judería barrio being used to enlarge the overall space available. The complex is now some 8,300 square metres, including exhibition spaces, education centres and conference rooms, archives and cafe space. The impact of this museum, and later museums opened in the city has been fundamental in regenerating the city and driving visitor numbers, income and employment significantly upwards. A visit to the museum is essential as part of any Málaga trip. The building alone is captivating in its beauty, and the amplitude of the exhibition spaces is splendid, allowing the visitor to contemplate from one viewpoint, dozens of his paintings and works. Given the predominance of Spanish iconography in much of his sculpture, drawings and etchings, this museum so close to the house he was born in will really bring home to you not just his indisputable genius, but just how Spanish he really was, and how his roots were never far below the surface of his work. The museum is in the centre of the pedestrian area of the old town. If travelling by car, park in a city centre car park and walk, its no distance from several of the major carparks. The museum is open daily from 10am. In the summer months its shuts at 8pm, in spring and autumn at 7pm and in winter 6pm. Free admission is available for the last two hours each Sunday. Give yourself a minimum of two hours to fully enjoy just the permanent collection and you can choose whether to buy a ticket for the two temporary exhibitions.
