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.

  • The Museum is on the outskirts of Aix d you can park your car for a pleasant moment for whether there are guided tours and workshops for adults and children, I advise you to call the 1st Sunday of every month free or if you live on Aix in Provence you can quickly get the Pass card

  • The building itself sets the tone; large panels in mosaic, glass, or ceramic captivates you with a monumental curious optical effects. The Foundation strives to restore the site. It's nice to hang out in the shop where all kinds of objects, and thumbnails intriguing. Have a look that's so unique!

  • We are fortunate that this artist has left this legacy. That deserves a shot of nine, but the works are here all impressive for us to work the eyes.

  • 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!
  • A bit in the years to come, but the authentic feeling of the 70s comes to fruition. Probably, just (10.16) is being renovated. The Museum shop with great prints you can purchase is recommended.
