I loved this museum!

Not a lot of Cezanne's but, I found it to be a great museum. I went a couple of times and could and should have gone back again. It was never very crowded and very comfortable. I... read more

Not a lot of Cezanne's but, I found it to be a great museum. I went a couple of times and could and should have gone back again. It was never very crowded and very comfortable. I saw a lot of different art that I had not experienced and found it wonderful. I was surprised at how much I loved... More

Loved both the buildings -- make sure you see the "other half" in the restored church. The objets d'art were not exactly to our taste but it was nonetheless time well spent.

The art museum of Aix was for a long time known as "Musée Sans Cézanne", The museum without Cézanne. The director of the museum swore in early 1900s that no work of Cézanne would be bought by a museum as long as he was in charge. The bourgoise of Aix couldn't appreciate Cézanne's work while he lived, he was for... More

So much Picasso! A degas, a Monet, a Van Gogh, and no lines or crowds. Surprised that I had not even heard of this collection, but enjoyed it tremendously.

Great museum with beautiful collection of art and saw pieces of Picasso I've never seen before. Nice and small and no crowds. Highly recommend when they reopen with a new exhibit.

Note that the museum is closed for technical reasons from 26 May until 8 June 2015. We therefore could not enter which is a shame after walking the hot streets to get there.

We enjoyed the collection here and the layout of the museum. We are not art connoisseurs so I cannot attest to the quality of the works, but we enjoyed both the museum itself and the work in the chapel. In fact, the architectural elements in the chapel were beautiful, and I was allowed to very carefully take a photo of... More

Nothing to dislike here - the sculptures on the ground floor are magnificent as indeed are all the other works on display

When in Aix you need to make this a must see and for only 5 euros it's a great deal. The museum is located only a few blocks from the roué ton and is easy to find. The Paintings and ancient artifacts were spectacular and took you back in time to another time in History. With this tour you won't... More

Two buildings one with better exhibits than the other. However it has been our feeling that all the famous work is either out on loan or on permanent exhibition in major galleries around the world to the detriment of the birth place of local artists such as in this case (Aix en Provence) Cezanne. A great shame but I suppose... More
