The Museo Picasso Málaga was inaugurated in 2003. The institution has since then become fundamental for an understanding of the rich development of local culture. The museum is both a landmark and a magnet, as well as a key symbolic referent for anyone living in the capital of the Costa del Sol. For those drawn to Málaga from all parts of the world by the talent and fame of the most important painter of the 20th century, it is moreover an invitation to learn at close hand about the life and work of the locally born artist.
A visit is made all the more attractive by the architectural merits of the Palace of Buenavista, the building that houses the Foundation, whose vernacular heritage has not only been respectfully restored but also intelligently combined with contemporary architecture.
Located in the city's historic heart, very near the Cathedral and the Roman Theatre, the museum is open every day of the year. It shows temporary exhibitions and organizes a variety of educational and cultural programs.
With this combined ticket, you can visit the permanent collection and the temporary exhibitions.
