The collection of this museum spans but 3 centuries. The collection on display is not large, but coherent. It tells its own story. Other than the better known large museums of Paris, London, Amsterdam or New York, this museum is quiet. There no need to stand in line for hours to get in or to see a main piece of art. There were perhaps as many visitors as there were staff. What this museum does for you is give you the time and opportunity to enjoy art in an intimate way. Go and stand in front of a painting and study minute details, without being jostled by masses.
Very beautiful museum, I had a great time here. I was a little confused on how the lockers work, and it turns out you need to insert a 1 euro coin (which you get back). I didn't have coins, so I asked the people selling tickets, and they provided me with one. Also, people speak English here (at least the security guard did), which is always a bonus. The park behind the museum is also worth a visit, though if you're going by metro you won't miss it since it's the fastest way to get to the museum.
While in Marseille, this is a must see.....everything, the building, the surrounds, with the art exceptional......without the queues and you feel intimate with the art.....and if you go to the Natural History Museum next door... a great day....
Small but decent museum. Expensive considering the size in comparison to other offerings. However, the location and all to see around is worth it.
Отличная коллекция, советую уделить этому музею несколько часов своего путешествия!
The museum is very nice and super well located but no painting took my breath away 😅 I prefer the fine arts museums of Nice, Toulouse, Strasbourg and of course Paris ♡
It was closed without notice this wednesday morning (4th July)despite flaunting a huge banner declaring itself to be OUVERT. Is this some new French policy, copied from the italians,of putting off tourists?
