The "Palace" is impressive indeed but is in the middle of nowhere in the city. It houses two "not so important" museums, which worth a visit only if you have time or you have a specific interest in them.

Best time to visit this place is a spring/ summer cause of waterfalls. Palais has museum inside, but if you are not fancy to visit museum go upstairs and view the city from the top. There is a beautiful garden behind and in the end of the garden you will see stunning view of mountains.

This is truly unbelievable! Marseille has been designated a 2013 Cultural Capital of Europe for the YEAR of 2013, but this French City doesn't realize that a year has 12 months! The main reason to visit Palais et Parc Longchamp is to see the Museum of Fine Arts which has been closed nearly 4 years for renovations. It did finally open in May 2013 but is AGAIN CLOSED!!! Seems the French don't understand that tourists might still like to see the sites in December, because it's closed the entire month, while they change the exhibition and it MAY OPEN AGAIN sometime in January according to the tourist office. This is a tremendous disappointment and a disgrace! If you just go to visit the gardens you will also be disappointed because they are not kept clean, trash everywhere including in the front pool.

I went primarily with the intention of visiting the Fine Arts museum, but it was closed. no sign. No advise when it would re-open. Temporary fencing around it made it look like a crime scene! The gardens are nice and worth a little walk.

Currently in Palais et Parc Longchamp in Marseille some 200 masterpieces from the greatest painters of the 19th and 20th centuries including Van Gogh, Bonnard and Derain are on display. The Palais and grounds outside are spectacular and worth a visit even if you are not interested in the exhibition. Cost 11€ each. 5€ extra for a guided tour. Allow 2 - 2.5 hours.
