The Picasso Museum is the French national museum dedicated to the life and work of Pablo Picasso as well as to the artists who were linked to him. It is housed in the Hôtel Salé, one of the Baroque mansions of the Marais district, in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris.

The National Picasso Museum was closed to the public for major renovation and extension works, until its provisional reopening during the Heritage Days of September 20 and 21, 2014, then definitive, with its new hanging on October 25, 2014.

The new Picasso museum in Paris was inaugurated on October 25, 2014 by the President of the Republic, François Hollande.
