MUSEO PICASSO MÁLAGA PRESENTS AN APP FOR VISITORS TO THE MUSEUM AND PICASSO’S MALAGA

12/16/2020

Museo Picasso Málaga’s new app for iOS and Android is now available. It provides a safer and more personalized experience for visitors, and more fully developed digital content.

The free app will help visitors discover MPMs most iconic artworks and its exhibitions, with audio content and images that explain the details and secrets of the works. It also includes a tour of Picasso’s Málaga, information on cultural activities and accessibility, and the option to buy tickets online.

The app is now free to download from Google Play and App Store. An essential tool for visiting both Museo Picasso Málaga and the Picasso-related corners of the city where the artist was born and raised, it can be downloaded before the visit and used on arrival at the museum as a backup to the on-site visit. It can also be used to tour the city of Málaga and discover places and traditions associated with the universally acclaimed artist. To make it easy to download, QR codes can be found on the MPM website as well as in the museum lobby and ticket offices, providing direct access to the online distribution platforms for Android and iOS devices.

Like an official museum tour guide, the app provides audiovisual content and text to help visitors enjoy a selection of essential artworks, with its audio guide in ten languages (Spanish, English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic). It also provides detailed descriptions of the main works by Pablo Picasso held in the permanent collection: paintings, sculptures, graphic works and ceramics. It also contains information on cultural activities, accessibility, and the physical and digital projects on which the museum is currently working, as well as an online ticket purchase system.

The new app can also be used outside the museum itself, as its other purpose is to accompany users around the city as they discover places and themes related to Picasso’s life and artistic career: the bullring, Málaga wine, Plaza de la Merced, the sea, archaeology, and more.
