Pablo Picasso by Robert Doisneau, 1952

After having been closed for renovations for five years the Musée Picasso situated in the Marais has opened its doors to the public on the 25th of October the birthdate of Pablo Picasso. The Hôtel Salé, the grandest 17th-century hôtel particulier in the city, has been also expanded to triple the space available for the exhibited art pieces. It curretly houses over 5,000 paintings, prints, sculptures as well as Picasso’s personal archive and art collection.

As for all museums in Paris the entrance is free every first Sunday of the month but it is preferable to book your rickets in advance on the other days because as expected it is very crowded. Here below you can view an interesting guided tour on  BBC.com by the artist’s grandson Olivier.
