Calle San Augustín 8, Málaga


Opened in 2003, the Picasso Museum is the second most visited museum in Malaga following the Bull Museum (Museo Taurino) which is found in the famous La Malagueta Bullring. It is located in the Buenavista Palace which is a magnificent 16th century building which mixes Renaissance and Mudejar styles.

The Picasso Museum displays more than 200 works of art such as paintings, sculptures, ceramics and drawings which were part of a private collection belonging to Christine Ruiz-Picasso, Picasso’s step-daughter and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, his step-son. Picasso’s wish was to found a museum in his home city and put a collection of his works in it.

The museum has a permanent collection compiled of the artist’s works in chronological order in their periods. You can follow his artwork from the start of his career to his later works which date back to 1970.

While the museum was being restored in 1998, archaeological vestiges which date back to the Phoenicians, Romans and Moors, were found in the basement of the museum.
