The Picasso Museum is based in the Grimaldi Castle in Antibes, a listed Historic Monument owned by the Grimaldi family from the 14th century to the French Revolution.

Initially known as the "Grimaldi Museum", in 1966 it became the "Picasso Museum", as the famous Spanish painter was invited to use part of the castle as a studio by the curator in 1946. The "Picasso room" was inaugurated in 1947, displaying a total of 23 paintings and 44 drawings created on site.

After two years of work in the 2000s, the current museum enables visitors to rediscover the chronology of the "Antibes Picassos", from the post-war period to the late 40s, with major works by the artist: Joy of Living, Sea Urchin Eater, Woman with Sea Urchins, Still Life with Owl and Three Sea Urchins, Goat, Satyr, Faun and Centaur with Trident, etc.

Visitors can also admire works by Nicolas de Staël, as well as a rich collection of modern art representing the great 20th-century art movements. On the terrace are sculptures by Joan Miró, Germaine Richier, Bernard Pagès and Anne and Patrick Poirier.
