3.6
#6 of 14 in Museums in Aix-en-Provence
Together with architects John Sonnier and Dominique Ronsseray, Victor Vasarely established Foundation Vasarely in 1976. The trio wanted to promote "art for all" and of the "city of tomorrow." 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.

    To discover a beautiful aspect of the work of Vasarely. The visit is surprising but is suitable even for children. To do!

    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.

    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.

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.
