Musee Granet was opened to the public in 1838, on the property of Saint-Jean-de-Malte. It still shares gardens with the estate of Saint Jean’s church. This mighty structure houses works of art, including paintings by Jean Auguste Dominique and Paul Cezanne, and sculptures depicting pre-Roman settlements north of Aix.

Musee Granet reviews
I wasn't really aware of Granet as an artist before, but I very much enjoyed this collection. He was both talented and prodigious,creating many attractive little sketches and some large complex...

A beautifully presented collection of interesting artefacts arranged in a lovely setting. A bonus is the admission to the annex gallery that has a surprising collection of stunning art by Picasso...

This is a small museum that punches above its weight and is nicely curated. Perfect size for a leisurely visit and has some pieces from well-known artists such as Cezanne and Picasso. Loved that...

Well worth to visit the museum with big collection of Granet paintings, as well Cezannes and some of Picasso and other famous painters. There is also part with some older artefacts from Egyptian times, and with the same ticket you can visit other part of the galery set in a ex church. Nice to see some of Dalis work...
We recently visited,we can easily visit this place with @google maps help. You can take help of local transportation as well but if u wish to take walk it hardly 10 minutes walk from main city centre. Cost 5 💶 +1 Europe if you want to visit one more place which is just 5 minutes of walk. It is clean and you need to wear mask 😷 and health pass is mandatory (if you are Indian and you had taken 2 dose that certificate is valid). They have audio guide were you can select multiple languages and understand that. They had security guards also if need you can ask them also but for better understanding prefer audio guide. It will cost 3 euro💶 per place. So total 6 euro for both. It is little heavy on your pocket bt if you have interest then worth spending. If you are a person who have interest in art, history then this is a go to place. Duration can be 2 hours if you go into details.
Did not see at its best as many rooms were closed due to the end of the Egyptian exhibition. Whatever you do do not miss the Annexe housing the Planque donation. Truly stunning.
It was a nice museum with some beautiful paintings and sculptures .. However my goal of visiting was to see the temporary Egyptian Exibition .. It has very beautiful pieces of Egyptian Art but the most inspiring for me was the Lizard's mummy which is believed to be the only one of its kind in the world .. I'm Egyptian and was happy to see such thing for the first time .. The ticket to this museum gives access to a nearby smaller art Museum as well ..
Excellent museum but be careful : Part of the collection is exhibited in another building (a former Chapel) which they didn't explain clearly enough to us and we missed it.
