  • Many, many beautiful paintings, sculptures, beautiful remains. But almost too much, and then, the Museum does not others, since the time. We could bring the Italy up to Aix, with a little creativity. Prodigious: Entremont; ... Yes, but austere... The presentation is not appealing, it must cling. -Certainly, when it comes to learn, always force a little.

  • Do not expect major works by Cézanne... but nice collection, especially on the site of the chapel of the penitents not to be missed!

  • I travelled from the UK to visit this museum and discovered that it is closed without notice on the mobile version of the museum website. The website of the city Tourist Office is still recommending a visit to the museum. I strongly suggest a phone call before making a trip, to avoid disappointment!
  • I like the museum. I've seen interesting temporary exhibition and a permanent part. It's bigger than expected. I wish there was a café.
  • The museum is nice, with many pictures from Cézanne. I went with my family and the access with stroller is just climb the stairs! Not allowed to enter in the opposite street where supposedly wheelchair people have access. Inside the museum the access is no problem since there is an elevator.
  • A gallery in the centre of Aix entirely spoilt by the entry process which involves waiting in the full sun for 30 minutes or so, with no shade and no apology. Excessive airport style but inefficient screening and very slow cashiers.
  • Such a shame. I wanted to go for a visit but the visiting hours were not changed online.
