The Granet museum is a short 5 - 7 min walk from the Fontaine de la Rontonde (main fountain in the center of Aix en Provence). The 5 euro admission is well worth the price if you want to see a nice sampling of sculptures, paintings and other media. Note that the museum is split across 2 buildings, about 3... More

This museum is very interesting with paintings by Cezanne, Picasso and others. We found that the Collection Jean Planque, at a site nearby was fabulous, with a wonderful collection of Picasso's paintings. The Jean Planque collection is housed in a beautiful building, and very well displayed, and one ticket gives you admission to both museums.

Nice collection of local artists (Van Gogh, Cezanne, etc), staff a bit formal and brusque, but lovely art to enjoy.

The museum has two locations. The modern collection in a renovated church is really fantastic, so don't miss it. One ticket is good for both building.

The museum is spread across 2 buildings reasonably near each other There is so much to see that my family split up and met up regular intervals to point out rooms that the others might have missed The second building is both more modern in architecture and also in content all in all a very satisfying way to have spent...

This museum has also a nice little stores with art books and little items all related to art. Free entrance for disabled... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at this gallery housing the works collected by Jean Planke, no I hadn't heard of him either. He had a successful career advising, curating and collecting the works of successful and emerging artists earning himself a fortune along the way. He befriended many of the artists of his time who responded by gifting him... More

A variety of different sculptures is quite amazing to start with followed by varying paintings, housed over two buildings. I found the site Chapelle more interesting for the paintings whereas the Musee had spectacular sculptures. Paintings by Picasso, Renoir, Monet and Van Gogh just to name a few. Worth a visit.

There are two Musee Granet. The larger one, which is currently closed (for only a few weeks to accommodate an installation) and a smaller one. The smaller museum is in an old church several blocks away and is amazing. Incredible art beautifully displayed. A must go site in "X." Go!
