As others have noted, this is the best museum in the Provence area we were in. Museum was in great condition, and pieces were displayed beautifully. Its not a very big museum, so its manageable quite quickly. A sister museum in the chapelle granet is part of the entrance fee, and students enter free.

Mr Granet was a fine artist so you will see his work in the permanent collection as well as understand the name of the museum. The museum is considered by many as 'the home' of Cézanne because their holdings of his works and documents is so extensive. In 2006, a renovated Granet hosted the centennial celebration marking Cézanne's death. In... More

Came to Aix-en-Provence from Marseille just for a day trip, luckily this museum was opened (some reviews said the museum closed without notice), love the paintings and sculptures, worth a visit. I paid 5.5 euro and got tickets for both Granet Museum and Granet XXe, that was lovely!

The Granet is worth a visit and has a great array or paintings and sculptures. The sculpture room in particularly interesting. The Cezanne exhibit was a little disappointing given it is a bit small with only a handful of paintings. The gallery is easy to get around and well sign posted. Be aware that it does not open until midday

Great boutique museum. I love Maurice Denis' painting "Visiting Cezanne" which shows Cezanne painting Mt Victoire. The original is at Musee Granat along with some very interesting Cezanne pieces and others related to Aix en Provence history. Highly recommended along with the church next door.

A very nice museum, mostly filled with paintings (Cezanne of course, Rubens, ...). Don't miss the "annex" Jean Planque in a church, full of treasures from Picasso, Klee, Leger, Giacometti, ...

We ended going to this museum as it was part of the Cezanne walk. The museum has a few very nice Cezanne pieces and other artists of this timeframe, but if that is what you are looking for you will be disappointed. The Granet exhibit is the heart of the museum. His pieces are excellent examples of medieval art, and... More

One of the attractions of Aix is this museum. They were holding a exhibition of Camion with selections from Cezanne. The self guided audio tour was well done with a vignette provided with each display. While exhibits change, a visit to the museum is a worthwhile stop.
