About
Just a few steps from the Cours Mirabeau, a new Arts Centre is opening its doors in the Hotel de Caumont, a fully restored private mansion from the 18th century. Two major temporary exhibitions per year dedicated to great names in the history of art, as well as a diverse programme of events, makeCaumont a major cultural institution in Aix-en-Provence. The film > shown continuously every day in the auditorium presents the artist's journey and his passion for Aix-en-Provence and its region. The visit of the private mansion immerses you in the refined atmosphere of this exceptional venue, from the cour d'honneur to the gardens, passing through the historic rooms. The carefully furnished and decorated rooms reveal daily life at the time of Pauline, marquise de Caumont, one of the most famous owners of the mansion in the 18th century. The private gardens of the mansion, fully refurbished in the spirit of the site, offer over 1000 m² of peaceful space decorated with fountains,flowerbeds bordered by boxwood, and large vases of flowers.

Great art, too crowded
Aug 2020 • Couples
We had a lovely time looking at Joaquin Sorolla's paintings. They were beautifully presented and well arranged. However, especially during the covid crisis, it was quite crowded. With a reduced number of sold tickets I'd rate it 5/5.

Crowded art
Feb 2020
A gorgeous building, but badly organised, too many people allowed in at one time. Hard to return to go back once you leave one room (one area so full I could barely breathe). Went to see Hokusai Hiorshige and Utamaro Exhibition just after lunch, wrong time! The film show of Cezanne is fabulous and worth sitting down for. The garden and tea room an added bonus.

Beautiful Gallerie near the Cours Mirabeau
Jul 2019
Located within a short walk from the Cours Mirabeau, the Hotel de Caumont is a must-visit gallery while in Aix-en-Provence. Check the cafe if you have time. The gardens are beautiful. Paul Cezanne's work along with other impressionist art is on display.

Japanese Masters of the Edo Period
Feb 2020 • Solo
Wonderfully refurbished and completely restored mansion that once was the home of Pauline, the marquise de Caumont during the 18th century. The small garden in the rear of the home is an oasis of tranquility. Two rooms display furnishings and items of the time Pauline lived here.
At the time of my visit I was very fortunate to see an exhibition that focused on Japanese culture. Included was a collection of around 200 ukiyo-e prints from the great masters of Japan during the Edo era (included were works by Hokusai, Hiroshige and Utamaro).
Admission is a bit steep at 14.50 euros, but you get what you pay for.

Beautiful museum near cours Mirabeau
Jul 2019 • Solo
Located within walking distance of cours Mirabeau. Staff was helpful when I needed to find the elevator since I was injured and couldn’t make it up the stairway on the entrance. Many beautiful Paul Cezanne paintings on display.

Great temporary exhibition
Nov 2019 • Couples
There is not much to see by way of permanent exhibition. The temporary exhibition of oriental prints was superb but fairly expensive. I would only go to visit if the temporary exhibition floats your boat.
