Though it’s often overshadowed by Marseille’s multimillion euro flagship museums, this excellent art museum conceals some surprising – and impressive – finds behind its wrought-iron gates. The core collection contains some fantastic examples of 17th- and 18th-century Provençal art, including André Derain’s Pinède, Cassis (1907) and Raoul Dufy’s Paysage de l’Estaque (1908). A second section is dedicated to depictions of Marseille, with works by Max Ernst, Joan Miró, André Masson and others.
