  • Nice Museum, divided between classical and a temporary exhibition headquarters just near where there is a temporary exhibition with many works by Picasso. There is something of Rubens, Van Gogh, Klee, Cezanne, sadly, very little.

  • The building that houses it is one of the most beautiful areas of the city or rather in the guides is said of France. Inside a beautiful collection of works especially modern, makes from landlord naturally Cezanne. The ticket also leads to a chapel in a street not far from the Museum that also deserves to be seen.

  • Next General exhibitions, there was often remarkably good thematic exhibitions made like Picasso, American painting, Camoin for example. On Aix.

  • 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.
