  • Superb show deserted or staff is outnumbered visitors. What a pity for the Commissioners of the exhibition that deserves to be included in the hall sully of the louvre or she would meet his audience (IE a Parisian fan and friend of the Louvre who speaks). There are major figures of the County of Provence. Dandre bardon. Greenhouse. Vernet. Parocel. Veyrier. Puget and many others. On the ground floor very nice selection of paintings from the Museum. Building nineteenth superb longchamp Palace. Gaudin better organize shuttles tourists to this emblematic place.

  • 8 euros for the permanent exhibition + temporarily. Have WiFi. Works of Rubens, but highlighted by Pierre Puget, a Renaissance marselhais. Building and garden beautiful. Anyway ... Is an extra.

  • Glorious building but the volume of art on show is very small you can easily see everything in about 45 mins. Investment in to more English flash cards would be appreciated.
  • Suffers the same problem as every French gallery, of much of the best work having been taken to Paris, but nonetheless a superb collection in one of the most beautiful buildings in Marseille. The most interesting material, including the superb collections of 18th century portraits and of the works of Montecelli, is all on the upper floor.
  • Very big palace in one of the higher points of Marseille. Another icon of Marseille, a must seen for the tourists.
  • Beautiful Museum, recently renovated. Quite small but with a collection of paintings and interesting classical sculptures.
