Musée municipal d'art et traditions populaires

Cassis - Museum

A deux pas du port, au coeur de la ville, celui-ci est logé dans un ancien presbytère du début du XVII. Le bâtiment est sévère, mais l'intérieur, tout de charme et d'équilibre, séduit dés l'entrée. Les expositions permanentes ou temporaires s'y succèdent. Noël y est fêté régulièrement de façon particulière.Ses collections de peintures (la plus ancienne toile remonte à 1601), ses vestiges romains et ses amphores, proposent une diversité propre à séduire les visiteurs. Un coin lecture, une mini-boutique, complètent cette halte honorée à différentes reprises par les grands guides: BBC, Athéna Review, le Figaro Méditérranée et les diverses radios de la région. D'octobre à juin, des conférences sont organisées en collaboration avec l'Association des " Amis du Musée".
Entrée libre. Visite commentée payante pour les groupes.
