A bit underwhelming but ......

The museum is worth a visit. It is not large. The highlight for me was an original mock up or maquette of proposed paintings for a cupola in St Peter's in Rome. There is a good film about the artist. It is rare for such maquettes to have survived.

Interesting and worth a visit
Oct 2019 • Couples
Small but interesting museum housed in an old mansion. Quite a pleasant place to spend a half hour or so to look around an eclectic collection of old Aix treasures of various kinds. As mentioned by a previous reviewer on here make sure you check your change carefully if you pay the entrance fee in cash! Bit of a scam going on by the lady at the ticket counter...

Old fashioned local museum

I suspect not much visited but if you like museums, it had a pleasantly old fashioned vibe and there were thins of interest to see in it.

Small museum based on a family that owned the house. Extremely good English audio guide for 3 euros. Worth getting. The foyer and staircase was of special interest. The screens were remarkable. Staff very pleasant and helpful. They were keen to speak English and help.

Unique Collection
Jun 2018 • Couples
The displays of salons for miniature figurines and the ‘window’ scenes with dolls (crèches) were superb. It’s an eclectic grouping of treasures but interesting. We were fortunate to visit on a day of free admission.

Slim pickings

Not much here but it is located in a pleasant building. Alert: no public restrooms.

The collection of little figure and marionette dolls was more interesting to my wife than to me.

Interesting small museum
Feb 2018 • Couples
The gentleman who greeted us was extremely helpful. He sought us out in one of the exhibit rooms to tell us a movie with English subtitles was about to begin. We found their eclectic collection interesting. There is short English overview guide for all of their exhibits.

Worth the visit

It's a little museum but worth the visit when walking from Cours Mirabeau to the cathedral. Very friendly staff. The model of the old palace of the Comptes de Provence shows what has been lost.

Nice small museum, and free!
Apr 2017 • Friends
It was a nice surprise to find out upon entering the museum that it was free. I think it would be worth it to go even if they charged a small fee. The rooms themselves are nice and there is a small collection of ceramics, santon figures, furniture, paintings...

The only reason we were slightly disappointed was because the map we got at the tourist information office said that there were also costumes.

It's sweet.

They have a smallish collection of some interesting things, the creche that talks, a little of this, a room with a painted ceiling, some masks that Roi Rene commissioned. It's very nice. The Fetes Dieu room was interesting.
