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.
