  • The only negative is the lack of orientation of the course positive ticket paired with chapel Granet, great present painters Cézanne, Picasso, rembrant, Monnet. Essential

  • We expect more paintings of Cézanne, but there are others. The pub is a bit exaggerated. But the pleasure is not measured by the amount

  • We cannot expect a great Museum but it is nice to visit and it has some works of Cézanne (less than the expected, the truth) and Picasso.

  • 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.
