A museum nicely placed in a shady area with free flowing fresh cool drinkable water at its entrance. Be surprised when you enter, at the rich scattering of great artists works adorning the walls. From Cezanne, Picasso through to early Roman, there is plenty to...More

The Picasso-Picabia exhibit is quite interesting (and we also enjoyed Camoin a few years ago) but we were somewhat frustrated that the museum does not allow visitors to leave and re-enter the same day. There is no café in the museum (except for a few...More

This museum is worth spending time and reasonably price. Plan to spend time and see so much wonderful art. See every level of art in this museum. Don't go to the Caumont Center D'Art.

We struggled to find the place as it didn't seem to be where the map showed it. I suggest you ask when you think you are close! A nice art gallery with well laid out exhibits spanning several centuries. The sculpture gallery is exclusively classical,...More

Lovely art museum with some well known pieces, but my favorite part was the Granet XX which is a couple of streets over in a converted chapel; great setting with some wonderful modern classics (entry included in your Musee Granet ticket)

We really enjoyed the special Picasso exhibit that runs until September. It was very insightful into Picasso’s art. The rest of the museum was very limited.
