Directions to Musee Picasso
The Musee Picasso (formerly Chateau Grimaldi) opened on 27 December 1966. Picasso himself stayed here from September to November 1946 during which time he completed many works and donated 23 paintings and 44 drawings to the town of Antibes.
Since then many donations and purchases have been made to expand the collection within the 14th century chateau to more than 150 works.
Chateau Grimaldi was at one time the home of the Royal Family of Monaco, hence the derivation of it's name. Since then it has seen the most marvellous history as domicile to royalty and military alike. The Museum has an eerie but calming effect on one's mind as you wander through soaking up all the history that has gone before. An incredible building and in a stunning location, it is a lovely walk around les ramparts and the old town of Antibes. This museum is a must if you are a fan of the great artist.
