Musee des Beaux-Arts, Marseille

3.7
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. Musee des Beaux-Arts is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Marseille Edition.

  • The problem is the accessibility of culture. Admission is 6 euros for 2 temporary collection showrooms, it's expensive. Otherwise the Longchamp Palace itself is beautiful.

  • Nestled in the West Wing of the Longchamp Palace, the Museum of fine arts is a nice Museum but not at the height of the second city in France. After visiting a few museums of great European capitals, you'll quickly realize that the Marseilles collection leaves a bit to be desired. On the other hand, it becomes essential to extend one afternoon at the Longchamp Palace which, in my opinion, is the most beautiful building in Marseille.

  • Rather smaller than expected. A good collection of local arts since the renaissance era.
  • Nice. I recommend
  • free entrance, magnificant view and architecture, the exposition is very interesting
  • 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.
  • Under construction during my visit May 2017, all the fountain are drained off

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
