My favourite museum in Aix. Do go for the audio guide as you gain so much more information about the collector and his relationship with the artists.

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.

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 !

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.
