This museum located in beautiful castle building on bank of river Rhone and there are a lot to see. There are great collection of modern art including 57 Picasso's drawings, very interesting temporary exhibition of photos, exhibition of some pieces of design. And building itself is very impressive. Allow about 1,5 hour.

We had never heard of this hotel previously but it was a delightful surprise. The building itself and it's history is interesting and then there is the art of Reattu, Picasso's, a letter from Van Gogh and sketches by Arles local Christian Lacroix.

This museum is beautifully laid out through a large building over several levels. The quality of the art is very high and should be carefully perused. We visited on a Monday when it was very quiet. There are terrific views down the Rhone river from some rooms.

The paintings of the Classical Realist painter, Reattu, were so outstanding, we started looking for other galleries that house his work, unfortunately, it all seems to be housed at this museum, so if you don't go, you'll miss this artist. It has... More

The building itself was the highlight of this museum. Large collection of pieces by Reattu; good collection of Picasso sketches, rest of collection seemed haphazard in its display, no rhyme or reason to presentation

I was not a huge fan of the modern art exhibitions but the more classical pieces were quite stunning. One nice advantage about this museum, particularly in September is it is not very busy. Also, it is very reasonably priced, especially if you buy the Arles museum pass.

This museum is housed in the former house and studios of the Arlesien painter Reattu. The views of the Rhone from where he worked are wonderful. There is a super collection of drawings and paint sketches by Picasso.

It is definitely worth a visit, both for the collection, and the amazing Picasso's sketches, and for the building. Remember to check the cumulative tickets.
