The Pablo Picasso Museum in Malaga is just one of the tributes to this great twentieth century artist. Although Picasso only lived in Malaga for the first ten years of his life it had been his desire to have a presence in the city of his birth.
Located in the historic quarter of Malaga in the lovely 16th century Palacio de Buenavista, a typical Andalucian house with Renaissance and Mudejar influences. It houses almost 200 works of art in the twelve halls of the Museum permanent collection. The gallery has another 4 halls for displaying temporary exhibitions as well as an assembly hall, a library, an educational department and an investigation and a promotion centre.
This collection is of works and paintings that Picasso gave to his family members and many of the exhibits have not been seen in public before. Its inauguration day, 27th October 2003 saw almost 2,000 visitors and its popularity has diminished.
Just minutes walk away from the Museum in Plaza de la Merced is the Birthplace of Picasso or Casa Natal which is needs to be visited if you're so close.
