The Musée Picasso Paris is one of the most important museums in the world dedicated to Pablo Picasso, with over 5,000 artworks by the 20th-century Spanish artist.
The museum, opened in 1985, is housed in the Hôtel Salé baroque palace.
In 2014 the building underwent major renovation and expansion works, on a design by the French architect Jean François Bodin.

The Musée Picasso is one of the few museums featuring the whole artistic life of Picasso, its collections are based on two artwork transfers by Picasso’s heirs in compensation for French inheritance taxes.
Along with an impressive amount of Picasso’s paintings, sculptures, ceramics, etchings and drawings, the collections also include documents, photos, notebooks, sketches, drafts and illustrated books.
