Our tips

Picasso Museum queues

  • The biggest crowds gather during weekends, especially on Sundays: the entrance is free after 15:00. The first Sunday of each month you can visit the museum for free the whole day: imagine the waiting lines! It’s THE day to avoid.

  • During high season waiting lines to the Picasso Museum can easily take 1,5 hours of your time, sometimes even more.

  • The main tip is to buy your ticket online on the museum’s website, it will grant you immediate access upon your arrival. Definitely worth doing.

  • The least crowded time slot is in the morning: from 10 to 11. Try to come just before the opening time - thus your wait will be reduced to minimum. If late, you’ll find those famous queues (longest between 11:00 and 15:00).

  • There are some “open door” days (check the calendar) when the entrance is free. Not surprisingly free entrance will attract bigger crowds!

  • Choose a sunny day for your visit, most museums tend to get a higher flow of visitors when it’s raining.
