  • Fan of painting living Auvers Sur Oise (country of Van Gogh...) he had to go at the Granet Museum! It is the largest (Picasso, Rembrandt, Klint...) we want more! Bravo, a nice temporary expo, the clear spaces except for the darker Granet. We like to stop and read the explanations available.

  • Essential. Very beautiful paintings of french, Italian painters and flamingos. Very courteous. Fair price

  • It is a Museum of art representing the ex-en-Provence. Here is also a work of Cézanne born in southern France to tourists in popular and always crowded. Addition to Granet's work is, of course, such as Rembrandt or Picasso works, and see if you think one day it is.

  • 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.
