    Art lovers, connoisseurs informed or less enlightened, this Museum will appeal to the monde(il y a même deles de audio guide adaptés àles plus jeunes, que je n'ai pas testé). Permanent collections among which are of great classics of the painting (the XIV to Cezanne and Giacometti). Temporary collections are always quality. I recommend, again and again. Free for students.

    The Museum I found very interesting the works did not hit particularly well. 8 € seems honest but pay €11 for the audio guide that must be returned at the end seems crazy! In other museums is free with the delivery of a document ...

    Visit the Museum one afternoon, we should spend those 2 hours to enjoy the Sun... Tables have been no emotions with us, I must say that contemporary art is not for everyone... In addition, the works are presented in numbers much too important in every room, the eye of the visitor is so mobbed information which spoils the pleasure of contemplation of the table. In short, a real disappointment.

    Went here with high expectations. Even though there were a few artworks that I loved, most of them were quite juvenile for my taste.

    The museum is not very large but interesting. Inside there is a section dedicated to archeology (small) as well as works of art. Here is mixed modern and classical art.

    Nice place, the exposition wasn't to my taste but everything was good, the way it's exposed and the audio book.

    Not bad but there's much better galleries in the UK which are all free

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.
