There are two separate buildings that house some very interesting paintings and sculptures by renown artists. The tours are given in French, but audio guides are available at an additional cost. They do take your passport as security if you rent one. I found it a little uncomfortable to do so, but it was not a problem. You really don't... More

No trip to Aix is complete without a visit to this museum. There is no point in reviewing any particular exhibition we have seen there, there have been many. We have never been disappointed and have always enjoyed the subject matter and its presentation. The museum is not too large and is very well curated so that an hour or... More

One of the best Art Museums I've ever been to. I had the privilege to view the Pearlman Collection of Cezanne and other post impressionists~!

On until October 2014, a collection of fabulous expressionist art collected from the 1940's until his death. Well worth visiting.
