  • Visiting this museum was proposed to us by the Office of tourism, among other cultural points of the city. I was lucky though we arrived the previous day to the first Sunday of the month because it's free. That is not extasierait at the works of Cézanne and other painters of the same talent each in his field? There is no need to wait for a rainy day to get there, because even in the sunlight outside the inner freshness and the tour at their own pace worth it.

  • To be in the city that was the birthplace of Cezanne, his works are few but, however the museum displays several paintings by other artists, including a number of Picasso, and is altogether enjoyable. There is a small archaeological site and a section dedicated to statues with classical subjects. Remarkable, as the setting, the extension of the Museum, in the chapelle des Pénitents blancs in easy walking distance of the main building of the Museum.

  • Interesting museum made by a family of collectors. I have appreciated especially the modern works of art. They also have some Cezannes, Picassos, Van Goghs and some classical and neo classical artist. I recommend this museum. You will also like its extension, which is in a nearby building. Give 2 hours for the visit which costs 9 eur.
  • 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.
  • A modest collection of art with a smattering of really good pieces. The Giacometti drawings were my favourites.

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.
