#6 of 13 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.

  • A foundation that is quite unknown to the exit of Aix that presents the works of Vasarely 3 th visit to see huge works in a surprising building! The visit is done fairly quickly, easy to park. Currently of major renovation works that do not stop to visit and see the works.

  • An exceptional collection of monumental works presented in modules architectural pentagonal (cells) of high-rise designed by the artist himself. Alas building and works suffer the indignities of time (and sometimes the stupidity of visitors) and two cells out of eight are being refurbished. Nevertheless the visit relatively short (there is less than one hour) worth €9 admission and a short detour to Aix in Provence.

  • The reception by an agent who does not greet newcomers, a high price for an exhibition whose half of the rooms are closed for restoration. We are not questioning the need to restore but do pay high price is part of the scam when half of the rooms are closed... Starting, the same agent out to smoke but does no more greet visitors to €9 the visit! funny how to behave

  • Great collection of opart works by Vasarely. The building itself is stunning!
  • One of the most impressive places!
  • 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.
