Good museum that’s participating in the Mediterranean Picasso festival with a focus on the Vallauris years across four sites in that town. Watch the (easy to understand French) film in L’Eden too.

The museum has a small collections of Picasso's work. The only things that is noteworthy is the vault "La Guerre et La paix", which represents a quiet and peaceful place to stay. Apart from that, there is not much.
