The Musée Ziem was founded in 1908 thanks to donations by several artists including Félix Ziem. The collection is alternated regularly to ensure the public has access to all the works (ground and first floor).
The second floor is dedicated to a permanent collection.

Works by Ziem, very popular for his paintings of Venice and Constantinople including the famous "Martigues les tartanes".

Fauvist works by Raoul Dufy and André Derain, organised around important painters from the 20th century including Francis Picabia and René Seyssaud

Works by Provençal painters including Emile Loubon.

To ensure their conservation, works by Paul Signac, Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel are only exhibited from time to time.

The uppermost floor exhibits part of the archaeological collections from local digs from prehistory to modern times, from 8,000BC until the 18th century, an ethnological collection which reflects the importance of water in the daily life of the Martigues population with fishing articles and ex-votoes.

  • Group visits by appointment with family or friends or small groups from 5 people.
  • Guided tours for groups and school groups every day by appointment.
  • For visitors with a disability: tactile and sensory workshops and French sign-language tours.
  • For all visitors: lunch at the museum, birthdays, sensory workshops, eyes-closed tours, conference programmes, workshops and courses about art history.

The museum has the "charte du Môm'Art" label which aims to assist museums and cultural sites to improve their facilities and services for families.
