Picasso's Museum-Birth House

Picasso’s Museum-Birth House features one of the largest collections of the artist, as well as numerous objects, childhood and everyday life memories of the painter. It’s a great collection that rigorously displays the mastery of Pablo Picasso in different printmaking techniques and an overview of the different periods, styles and techniques of this artist, which Málaga is proud of.

On March 25, 1983 the building that houses the Picasso’s Museum-Birth House was declared a National Historical Monument.

Pablo Picasso was born in 1881 and lived in Malaga until 1891, subsequently moved with his family to Galicia and later Barcelona until 1904 when he established his residence in France. Despite the distance, Picasso was always closely related to his hometown visiting Málaga city on several occasions and recalling it in his work where his Malaga roots are perceived.

But the house didn´t always have such greatness, since it was abandoned for almost a century until it was declared a national monument and began hosting the first works of the painter. At first, the building was modest, but with the help of donations from family and friends, it gradually grew until a large remodeling and expansion of the entire building was made in 1998.

We recommend arriving early in the morning, because the waiting lines are huge, since nobody wants to miss the chance to know the life and the appreciate the art collection of the most illustrious Malagueño, Pablo Picasso.
