  • A fine collection of sculptures of Pierre Puget who only worth it. Tables are more uneven, but the collection presents samples of the French school of the nineteenth century and the works of a few masters good Provencal. PS it's free the first Sunday of the month, so enjoy in!

  • 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
