The itinerary

Our skip-the-line tickets give priority access to the museum, however, please note that due to the Vigipirate Plan (increased security measures), there may be a waiting period at the security checkpoint at the entrance to the museum.

First, let’s set the stunning surroundings. The Picasso Museum is housed in the Hôtel Salé, one of the architectural masterpieces of the historic Marais district. It’s here that you’ll meet your guide before entering the museum via the grand cobblestone courtyard that once welcomed the carriages of noblemen and dignitaries of the 17th century.

From here your private tour will continue to the famously disfigured faces of the ladies in Picasso's life (and there were plenty of them, believe us!). Next will be an interesting time to discuss how the two World Wars impacted the artist’s style and the handling of his subjects, and on a lighter note, about Picasso's bohemian life in Paris. A bonus awaits you on the museum's top floor, where Picasso's personal art collection is on display and offers originals by Matisse, Renoir, Cezanne and more.

You’ll then head upstairs to see Picasso's works dedicated to bull fighting—which he had a major obsession for—and you’ll come face to face with one of his most powerful masterpieces, Massacre in Korea, which portrays in stark black and white the harsh reality (and futility) of war.

This exclusive private art excursion is the ultimate tip of the hat to the world’s most prodigious and creative soul, perfectly complimenting your Paris visit and ensuring that next time the name Picasso comes up in conversation, you’ll have a memorable experience to draw from and a unique personal perspective on this 20th century icon.
