Museums allow you to step back in time, travel the world, and get in touch with your creative side all at once. Read our guide to the must-visit museums in Aix en Provence, France.
Aix en Provence’s Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle knows how to make learning fun for the whole family. While art museums are filled with a bunch of people silently appreciating art, the city’s natural history museum is much louder, more exciting, and hands on. Discover the darkest secrets of the deep blue sea, before taking off into space and learning about the sun. Exhibits feature dinosaurs, rocks and gems, human anthropology, space, sea, and more — not to mention, the museum frequently hosts fun events, including night tours, film festivals, concerts, lecture series, and more. This is an especially fantastic outing for families and kids! However, be sure to take note of recent current construction that has caused a few museum closures.
Established within an eighteenth century mansion, Hôtel Gallifet opened in 2010 as a contemporary art center. There are numerous exhibitions, both permanent and ones that rotate a few times each year. The pieces span across multiple mediums, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and more. In addition to the featured works, the museum itself is quite the sight to see, being a historic architectural beauty with a lush garden. Enjoy a refreshing cup of tea outdoors, or perhaps in the elegant tearoom situated within the museum walls. Be sure to look out for exciting cultural events hosted by the museum, such as conferences, film screenings, lectures, and more.
