The Provence Art and History Museum was built by one of the oldest families of Provençal nobility and it is housed in an 18th-century luxurious mansion.
The exterior and the interior are composed of different elements, from Italian roof terraces to classic French façades.
It was in 1813 when the mansion was sold to the Bruery brothers. They were expert perfumers who transformed the mansion into a perfume factory.
You will find a collection dating from the prehistory of Provence all the way to Beaux-arts from the 20th century. The collection includes a selection of paintings, sculptures, graphic arts, furniture, ceramics, glassware, textiles, jewellery and even weapons.
Visit the museum showcasing Provençal traditions from daily life in its ceremonial rooms filled with some very interesting galleries. There is also a cuisine on the ground level presenting some cooking methods as well as traditional furniture.
The museum is also situated in a beautiful setting, a lush garden featuring rose bushes, lemon trees, magnolia trees, olive trees, and jasmine flowers.
You can visit any time between 10 am to 7 pm from May to September and 10 am to 5 pm from October to April.
