The Musée Picasso Paris presents a remarkable testimonial on Picasso and his creative process. The rare diversity of his collections is an invitation to endlessly explore the powerful work of this artist— at once a painter, sculptor, ceramicist, photographer and writer—through a multitude of thematic tours and experiences.

It is best to avoid any queues and book  online for what will be a very popular place to visit. The museum is located at the  Hôtel Salé, a fine classical 17th-century mansion in the  3eme arrondissement.
