Granet Museum was opened to the public in 1838, on the property of Saint-Jean-de-Malte. It still shares gardens with the estate of Saint Jean’s church.

  • I think that Granet Museum has an excellent atmosphere, especially the part in the old Chapelle. Artworks but also the architecture is unique. I really recommend  more »
  • A chapel with its own history, a Museum of the collector and painter, Jean Planque friend of Pablo Picasso. Beautiful and fantastic works by big names like Renoir, Degas, Monet, Nicola ... nice to see.

  • The famous Gallery Paris Jeanne BUCHER-JAEGER took his summer quarters, 3 months, place St. John of Malta, - oils in majority - works testify to the eclecticism of the gallery owner and his successors against the painters whose work has been or is recognized and promoted for decades. ARP, BAZAINE, BISSIÈRE, DUBUFFET, DE STAËL are among other travel. The Museum Frieder BURDA of Baden-Baden was also spent by Aix-en-Provence a few years ago. Personally, I appreciate this type of presentations. The entry ticket to Granet is paired with the nearby Penitents chapel which houses a collection of quality, that of the Foundation Jean stash (Switzerland).

  • Beautiful exhibit! Can't blame security for profiling my arabic husband.
  • Some nice pieces in the collection but a lot of the lighting was poorly done. Reflections made for difficult viewing of many pieces.
  • Exceeded my expectations. Limited in scope but very well curated.
  • Very rich collection of artworks, super friendly staff.
  • 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!

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.
