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.

Well worth standing in line to enter and visit. I was very surprised to see visitors taking photographs of the art work including the paintings. This is not allowed in the States.

We enjoyed the exhibition which brought us to the museum and introduced us to Camion. Even better was the visit to the chapel, where the collection was wonderful and varied. Would highly recommend a visit.

Love the musèe ! There were two musèe to visit when I purchased the ticket (1 ticket 2 locations). If you appreciate art, please do drop by to visit. I spent the entire afternoon around here. There's so many levels of different art here. From paintings to sculptures to antiques. Take a walk to enjoy and experience what Cezanne had... More

The Granet has art through the ages. The collection is displayed in 2 separate buildings. The main building, situated in a tranquil square has 3 levels. The lowest has Greco-Roman/Celto-Ligurian sculpture and objects from Aixois archeological digs. Upstairs the collection reaches into the 20th century, complete with a unique Cézanne gallery. The second building holds the "Planque Collection" of 20-21st... More
