Study 42 large works of art, each 6 by 8 m (20 ft by 26 ft.) Vasarely's seven "cells" are hexagonal rooms that measure 14 m (46 ft) across and 11 m (36 ft) high. The French National Commission named the foundation a historic monument almost 40 years later.

  • For kinetic art lovers a must. Great building, sadly currently in renovation, so that not every room can be entered but alone for the 3 or 4 accessible rooms with huge paintings, mosaics and rugs by Vasarely worth a visit! Great!

  • very interesting for those who love modern art. for me a Pearl and the most interesting thing about aix. many works. very nice also the external structure. There's a parking lot. being a little out of aix, is located in the area with little traffic and drive to get there comfortably.

  • A nice, spectacular museum. Nearly half of the exposition is shut down for renovation though. Admission fee is a bit pricey, 9 euros for an adult and 4 euros for a child, considering the current situation of the museum.
  • Simple and interesting museum building! Very nice plateau where is placed this museum. Unfortunately it was under renovation when I went there.
  • We visited today with two teenage boys. Big succes. Everyone loved this small expo.Yes, the state of the building needs some serious renovation they are working on technical nstallations i think. This Does Not take away from the huge impact and significance of this Temple of futurist vision. Happy i bought a book at the shop.
  • Unique in the world, the building was built around the art work of Vazarely with many giant pieces of art.
  • Slightly run-down but nonetheless an amazingly good modern art museum. Fab building too!

Where to stay in Aix-en-Provence

To explore the old town's shops, markets, and bookstores on foot, stay at one of the city's centrally located hotels. Just a short drive from this busy central area are a selection of luxurious villas, surrounded by formal gardens and private swimming pools. Though rather expensive, these elegant mansions provide a convenient base from which to explore the cultured area surrounding the city. For a cheaper alternative, look for private inns and B&Bs on the edge of town.
