Other experiences in Malaga besides Picassos Birthplace

The Museum of Picasso’s Birthplace is not very large and you can quickly get an overview of the rooms. But the price for entering the museum in 2020 was also only 3 Euro 🙂

In Malaga there is also a larger museum for Picasso: Museo Picasso, where you can easily spend several hours.

See the website for Museo Picasso

As a result of the birth of Picasso in Malaga, a huge environment has been created in this city to open art museums.
