  • 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.
  • Great experience. A must see
  • 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.

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.
