There was a special exhibition when we were visited. We waited in a long queue for entrance. Paintings were extremely good and exhibition too.

Entrance to the Granet museum also gets you an added bonus of access to the Art collection at The former white Penitents Chapel , not far from the Granet museum.There were no guide brochures in english when i went so make sure you explore the whole of the museum, its quite easy to miss stairs and access to other parts...

The museum itself is fine, but don't miss the wonderful exhibit of modern works in the Chapelle Granet several blocks away. This renovated chapel provides an absolutely stunning space in which to view the Planck collection, which includes some twenty works by Picasso in addition to other contemporary artists.

Entrance to both the Granet Museum and the Granet XX Collection of Jean Planque are free on the first Sunday of the month, except in June, July and August. Yes, I know I am in France, but was a bit disappointed that the Granet Museum didn't offer any information in English, not even a plan of the museum. However, I... More

If you love art and enjoy lingering by painting and bathing in their glow, go here. Take time, sit, there are Rueben's here which will return in your dreams.

The Musée Granet is a museum in Aix-en-Provence, France devoted to painting, sculpture and archeology. I enjoyed very much the visit, which lasted about one hour.

Musée Granet is a nice museum inside the old city of Aix en Provence. It’s a beautiful 17th century building showing several hundreds of paintings (including Rembrandt, Ingres, Cezanne, Picasso and Giacometti) in its permanent collection plus special exhibitions (see the website, according to the period of your visit). To be visited when touring in Aix en Provence!

The Musee Granet is actually in 2 buildings. The first part was mainly sculptures, busts, of important people in France, but in particular Provence. Some renaissance paintings. But the highlight for me was the 2nd location on Rue M Joffre where they offer audio for 3 euros -- (well worth it) the Jean Planque collection consisted of Van Gogh, Picasso,... More

We enjoyed this museum with a lot of good art, a lot of nice Picassos and some Monets. Simple, easy museum with a lot of good pieces.

Nice museum with some interesting pieces and a few Cezannes which were nice to see given his history with the town. Its in a great position near the centre of town and is worth seeing if you have the time. On the downside I was hoping, in the absence of an extensive collection, to have something else to take away... More
