Musee des Beaux-Arts, Marseille
(3.6/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
Located in the right wing of the famed Palais Longchamp, Musee des Beaux-Arts represents one of the most prestigious museums in Marseille. While its galleries feature a variety of French artwork, they also boast important works by Italian, Spanish, and Dutch artists spanning several centuries. As you walk through the small but impressive collection, don't miss the grandeur of the building itself, designated a historical monument. The museum sometimes hosts special exhibits; check their website for the latest events. The parking in this area is notoriously difficult, so consider taking public transit here. Make Musee des Beaux-Arts part of your personalized Marseille itinerary using our Marseille family vacation planner.

  • Stately architecture, impresses with size and beauty. With a central fountain and other smaller further up, reigns grandeur. Great pictures, only the foreign visitor already is very worthwhile.

  • 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.
  • Gorgeous building amd landscaping. Even if you don't feel like going inside, go and picnic on the grass!
  • 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.
  • 雖然不是存放高規格畫作的地方, 但光這個建築也是值得來走一趟了
