This museum is a bit small and doesn't have a lot of Picasso's work. There is one section that has a series of his works (they seem to be related), but most of this is a temporary exhibit on display. The fee to get in is 8eu I think but they also offer a dual pass for the Van Gogh... More

Liked a few Picasso paintings and I liked the building itself. Shame it was 10 euros each to go in, a bit over-priced. Very average.

Building nice and artworks were quite interesting, but not too much to our taste. Found it difficult at times to find our way around, in the right order. Good value on the combi-ticket pass.

Very interesting to see the artists from the Arles area, including Reattu. The museum itself is in a lovely building with views over the river. The collection of Picassos is impressive, as is the more modern art. Worth a visit, particularly using a combination or a Passeport Avantage ticket, which gets you in to the other museums and attractions.

Varied selection of artists who worked in the area, particularly Reattu himself. Picasso's interesting as ever with his work.

In a medieval building, this little and cosy museum has an interesting collection of Picasso drawings and the major works of the excellent photographer Lucien Clergue.

Great space, old priory on banks of Rhone, Réattu's works admittedly left us a little cold but there are plenty of other Arles related artists as well, though the juxtaposition of 18thC and modern installations can jar somewhat. Best are the Picasso works , drawings , lino cuts, and small portraits that he donated in '71 after an exhibition there.... More

The building is beautiful, worth a visit of several hours just to explore the rooms and views out the windows and experience the remarkable architecture....love the gargoyles. The exhibits themselves are also wonderful and there are a lot of them. The history provided (in English as well!) was very helpful. I never knew that much about the Knights of Malta... More

The artwork was absolutely stunning. What a treat to see many Picasso paintings I never knew existed! As well, the photographs by Lucien Clergue are incredible. I cannot recommend this art experience enough!

The museum is along a river. However, the entrance was backward and I needed to walk around small paths to find the entrance. The building was old castle. I enjoyed inside of the building as well as arts displayed.
