“Nice photo op”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

This is one of only two places we visited during our stop over here to Lourdes. The picture opportunities here with the family is great. Place was bigger than imagined but hidden away in the city. Parking was hard to find even if we got lucky and found one directly behind the park.

“A charming Palais and pleasant gardens.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The Palais is a lovely sight and the park behind it is pleasant enough. Worth a visit. The building has a sense of magic and charm although don't expect too much of the gardens.

“A nice place to visit, but Museums are bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

You expect much much more from the Museum Beaux Arts ion the second largest city in France. Maybe it is poverty, maybe it is lack of interest in the arts. It is a sad sight, a few Rubens, not much more. Better on the outside then

“A Must See!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Marseille! There are two entrances, one through the park which is closest to the 5 Avenue Longchamp metro, and another from turning right once you get out of the metro and walking a little bit following the signs. I highly suggest the second entrance view from the street. Then you can walk up towards the fountains and walk down through the park!

There are a couple of museums and also a planetarium! They close around 6 pm though! The palace and park stay open at different times according to the season. I went in March and it closes at 7pm then.

“Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

The palais is awesome, don´t miss it if you are visiting Marseille. Nice art collection inside the Musée de Beaux-Arts (and free for students).
