  • Museo Picasso Málaga: Ticket & Audioguide

    1. Museo Picasso Málaga: Ticket & Audioguide

    The Museo Picasso Málaga was created in response to the artist's desire for his work to be exhibited in the city of his birth in 1881. Its realization is thanks to the combined efforts of the artist´s daughter-in-law and grandson, whose donations provide the body of the art collection, and Junta de Andalucía, who arranged an ambitious project devoted to the artist. Located in the Palacio de Buenavista, declared a National Monument in 1939, the Museo Picasso Málaga opened in the heart of Málaga in 2003. The building boasts a harmonic mix of Renaissance and Mudéjar elements and serene contemporary lines. Phoenician, Roman, and Arabic ruins can be found on the underground floor. This ticket provides access to the permanent collection or the temporary exhibition. The permanent collection contains examples of Picasso's revolutionary innovations. See paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramic...

    Our tour guide Ava made our whole experience wonderful. Such a lovely, vibrant, sweet girl. Our bike tour of Malaga was very informative and relaxing. The Tapas and wine was a very Spanish experience and made twice as nice as Ava sat with us and explained the food and knowledge of life of Spain as she knew it. We were her first Irish travellers and we hope she enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed her. The traditional wine bar/brewery was amazing and a place we would never have stumbled upon. We had such a great day and would recommend this highly. Hello to our two Dutch buddies Thanks Ava....... The five Irish ladies.

Of course, it is much cheaper here than there, it is very profitable because it makes many important stops, they explain, you have a walking tour included, the boat was a spectacular plus. Although I emphasize that we had problems to redeem some of the activities that were supposedly included, such as wines, tapas ...

Nice bike ride and enthusiastic Dutch guide Anouk who turned the outing into a party. Beautiful sights and delicious wines and tapas. Definitely worth a visit if you're ever in Malaga!
