The Picasso Museum Reopens in Paris Musée Picasso 75003 Paris fr

After 5 years of renovations, the Picasso museum will reopen in Paris on October 25, 2014. The date was chosen as a tribute to Pablo Picasso, born on October 25, 1881.


The architectural firm Bodin & Associés was commissioned to renovate and expand the Museum, now ready to welcome more visitors and art works. Four hundred works carefully selected from the vast collection of nearly 5000 will be displayed in 37 showrooms spread across five floors.


The more eager had the chance to be the first to discover the Musée Picasso Paris on October 4, during Nuit Blanche. A lucky few previously had an exclusive sneak peek of the refurbished spaces inside the Museum, during European Heritage Days, on September 20 and 21.


The Fondation Louis Vuitton — Paris’ newest art museum devoted to contemporary art — and the Monnaie de Paris, the Parisian coin museum, are also set to open on the same week.
