The collections of the museums are beautiful and there was an exhibition of painting of an American who lived 1 year in Provence between 1957 and 1958. Do not forget the Chapel, a few hundred meters, which is an integral part of the Musée Granet.

The collections are beautiful and the Museum has the right size, neither too large nor too small (I took 1h30 to 2H during the week and taking my time). A visit to AIX!
Quite interesting Museum, masterpieces from very different period. Take around one hour to visit. but there is also an other part included in the ticket which is located 5 minutes walk from the main building
There are paintings from some very famous French artists. One star off for not putting up English names of paintings. Google translate to rescue.
