Total surprise after a disappointing visit to the Granet. The collection is eclectic but really special. Van Gogh Picasso and many other highlights. The collector's story and how it all came to be is really special.

This incredible art museum didn't come up on my radar until we came across the special Picasso exhibit. When they informed us that the rest of the museum was around the corner, the momentum and art got even better.

Small chapel converted for a good collection of modern art. Included in ticket for the Musee Grandet. Opened late both days we tried to get in, at 1pm instead of 10am.

You should visit the extension of Musée Granet devoted to the fabulous Foundation Jean Planque. Many famous painters are represented among them Picasso, Dubuffet, Cezanne, Degas etc... Sure you will appreciate this earlier Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs, with the beautiful renovation inside architecture !

This is an off-shoot of the Musee Granet round the corner. It has a great collection of works by well-known (Picasso, Cezanne) and less well known painters and sculptors. Well worth a visit. There is also a lift to get you to the two upper...More

The Twentieth Century branch of Musee Granet contains some surprises - a fascinating Van Gogh, a Gauguin portrait, a Sonia Delaunay portrait, some super Debuffets. The setting is a converted church and it is airy and light and a superb place in which to see...More

A beautifully, interestingly curated exhibit in perfect surroundings. Charming staff. A place to spend worthwhile few hours when in Aix. Would highly recommend.

Small collection. Well curated with descriptions in French and English. Paintings near the glass railings on the upper levels are better viewed from th ground floor. Stunning transformation of a chapel.

The site is well located, in an old church, beautifully re-arranged. The collection is rich and diverse and its story is well told. A MUST for art lovers in Aix. Better than the original Granet.

I loved this museum. It’s fascinating to see a collection like this composed by one person. The art and the history of its accumulation was well presented. I liked this a lot more than the large Granet. Free for students!
