This is a wonderful museum to whet your appetite for art in Provence. We viewed many pieces by famous artists and we enjoyed the ambiance of the facility as well. There is a second museum that has pieces by Cezanne, Van Gough, etc. we will return to this interesting area to find more history and art.

Excellent collection of modern painters, including Cezanne and Picasso (not just the blue period, but pencil sketches and prints as well)

We were directed to this exhibition by our apartment host, and were surprised at the calibre of the show.

We enjoyed the "Camoin et ses lumineres" exhibition in the main building, but we found the Planque exhibition in the chapelle des Pénitents Blancs des Carmes.to be much more compelling, especially the gorgeous interior of the chapel itself.

We went here to see Cezanne paintings but it has primarily a current exhibit of Carmoin. We really enjoyed it as it was extensive and told his history. Be sure to get an audio guide. It will help tremendously to enjoy the exhibit. The museum also has Giacometti sculptures and drawings. The number of Cezanne paintings was fairly limited.

I visited here in June 2016 when I was staying in Aix-en-Provence for a week. It was not crowded in the least when I was there, which made for a very enjoyable and leisurely visit. The museum has quite a number of worthwhile artworks to see, including a self-portrait by Rembrandt and a couple of portraits by Rubens. There are... More

I had never heard of Charles Camoin until we visited here but he was a contemporary of Cezanne. Great artist. They also have some stunning Cezanne's. Make sure you visit the annex included in the very reasonable price of 7 euros.

Really, there are a few pictures of Cezzane, but we enjoy the expo of Camoin and other impressionist and modern pictures. The museum has a very good light and space to move. At my opinion you can not leave Aix without visiting it
