The Musee National Picasso is located in a magnificent mansion in the Marais neighborhood of Paris. The former residence is now home to several thousand works by the mega-famous French artist, spanning his career from 1894 to 1972.
There are 203 paintings, 191 sculptures, 85 ceramics, and over 3,000 drawings, engravings, and manuscripts in the museum. Besides the personal collection of Picasso, the museum also has some works of Cézanne and Matisse for a bit of variety and a look at who the artist inspired.
