Museum

The Musée Granet, Aix-en-Provence Town Hall's cultural institution, provides over 4000m2 exploring artistic design from Antiquity, 16th-19th century French (Le Nain brothers, Ingres, Granet), Flemish (Rembrandt, Rubens) and Italian painting (the Flémalle master) to masterpieces from modern and contemporary art. The museum presents the wonderful Philippe Meyer donation, "from Cézanne to Giacometti". The room devoted to Cézanne features ten masterpieces including the latest acquisition, the Portrait of Emile Zola.

The priceless Planque collection joined the museum for 15 years in 2010. It includes almost 300 paintings, drawings and sculptures from the impressionists and post-impressionists (Cezanne, Monet, Van Gogh, Degas) to major 20th-century artists such as Bonnard, Picasso, Braque, Léger, de Staël and Dubuffet. The museum has expanded into the White Penitents Chapel, a jewel of 17th century Aix architecture, to present the bulk of this fabulous collection.

The Musée Granet regularly hosts exhibitions on an international scale. It also provides an exciting schedule of temporary exhibitions, talks, educational and cultural activities.

Guided tours for groups and the general public are available in the museum's permanent and temporary collections in French, English, German and Spanish. Audioguides are available to hire in several languages (French, English, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese).

Activities for children and families are available all year round (guided tours and workshops). A games booklet for the collections is available for free, just ask at reception.

The Musée Granet has been awarded the Tourisme et Handicap label (motor, hearing and mental).
