“Unusual”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This small museum mostly concentrates on the religious procession in Aix. It's run by a moderately eccentric gentleman who is probably the best reason fro visiting. It's also free and worth 15 minutes of your time.

“quirky, quick tour stop”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

What a unique collection of artifacts from ancient Aix on display for free, housed in a superb building in inner Aix. Spend a few minutes or an hour getting the feel of what life was like there centuries ago. Fabrics, furniture, games & toys, kitchen implements all thrown together charmingly.

“Small, but Quite Special”
Reviewed 24 January 2011

The Musee du Vieil Aix is a sort of historical society dedicated to the decorative arts and history of Aix. The small museum occupies only three or four rooms in a lovely old building just a block or so from the Place des Martyrs de la Resistance and the Cathedral.

The collection consists of faience, sculptures, furnishings, historical artifacts, marionettes, old creche figures, and several tableaux of dolls in drawing rooms settings. Architectural plans of buildings in Aix and other historical items made this far more interesting than the Tapestry Museum nearby. I highly recommend...you'll only need about 45 minutes to do justice to this museum. Entry is free.
