Located in the heart of the historic and trendy Marais, the Musée national Picasso-Paris is a must see among the great Parisian museums. The Musée national Picasso-Paris’s exceptional collection is a result of a dation from Picasso’s family members. Representative of Pablo Picasso’s entire career, the collection is composed of major works from the artist’s workshops, which he preserved until his death, and of his entire archives (more than 200,000 pieces), forming a faithful and intimate portrait of one of the most emblematic modern artists. This collection – considered to be the most important in the world – is housed in an exceptional 17th century mansion, nestled in the historic heart of French culture.

In addition to its main collection, the Musée Picasso presents a rich program of temporary exhibitions and more contemporary performing arts whose artists or themes show Picasso’s broad and enduring legacy.

Come and explore the richness of Picasso’s creation and make your encounter with the works a unique experience.

L’escalier et son ruban d’aluminium irisé guident les visiteurs vers un espace café perché au 1er étage du Musée national Picasso-Paris. Ce magnifique rooftop du Marais qui vous permettra de profiter d’une pause « suspendue » en plein Paris avec vue sur la somptueuse façade de l’Hôtel Salé.




The Musée national Picasso-Paris offers children the chance to discover or rediscover the museum, share a playful moment and learn more about Picasso's works. Through activities devoted exclusively to them, they can learn about art, exchange ideas and develop their creativity. And the works in the museum are just the thing! There's something for every taste, and above all enough to make them want to come back again and again.


The Café sur le toit by Picto is open at the same times as the museum and offers traditional, simple cuisine using seasonal French regional produce: tasty sandwiches, seasonal salads, planks, pastries, fresh desserts and drinks are all on the menu. You can sit inside on small bar tables with stools, or on the terrace, a magnificent rooftop in the Marais district, where you can enjoy a 'suspended' break in the heart of Paris with a view of the sumptuous façade of the Hôtel Salé.
