  • As Aix is the city of Cézanne, one would expect to see many more of his paintings in this museum. Fortunately, the entrance fee also allows access to the Musée Planque, with works from the 20th century very well presented in an old church.

  • Am not an expert in museums and even if we are for part of the exhibition on a private collection Exhibition disappointing, confused, great sadness Rooms first floor closed..... Uses a lot the notoriety of Cézanne ..... very few works. Fortunately visit in a restored chapel near the museum with some Picasso and a less austere setting.

  • Beautiful museum, quiet and well arranged. The elevator allows everyone to visit even the floors. On the ground floor there are temporary openings.

  • Wonderful collection of art: everything is in perfect condition and really accessible, with no crowds, in comfortable, modern interior. Collection of Musée Granet left a very strong impression on me and I would be happy to come back one day!
  • Fabulous artistic experience. Good quality art from classic to modern. Ingres to Picasso. The extension in an old church is great as well. Good bookshop but lacks a good Cafe!
  • Must see. Some of the Art. Amazing. Worth the €8. There's some great tours that will get you there when it's hot.
  • Good collection, not expensive especially as entry includes XXe as well.
  • Very good museum with high quality works of art. Although the museum is relatively small, I would still advise pacing oneself. Between the main museum and the chapel extension a few blocks away (which was included in the price of the ticket), there are numerous wings and many pieces to view on several levels.
