I’ve gone on and on about my favorite Paris museum (Musée Rodin, of course), but with all that visiting and revisiting of Rodin, I found myself neglecting some of Paris’s other gems. Last fall, I finally rectified that problem with a visit to Musée Picasso.
Housed inside the grand Hôtel Salé, the Picasso Museum is manageable and compact while also being packed with plenty to see. I loved peeking through the collection, which had lots of Picasso pieces that weren’t exactly on my radar before. Another thing I adored? The building itself, including its uber-glam staircase.
Tucked away in one of my very favorite corners of the Marais, the Picasso Museum is well-worth a visit. To make it the perfect Paris afternoon, go to the museum, then grab an eclair (L’Éclair de Génie is just a few blocks away) and relax and people watch in Place Vosges. Sounds like heaven to me.
