Lovely building but difficult to find your way around the exhibition. Glad to see so many unusual Picassos and Van Goghs - even though they took some finding at first; peaceful courtyard in the middle of the building.

The museum is housed in the ancient Priory of the Order of Malta, then becoming the home of Jacques Reattu, a painter from Arles. The collection is quite impressive from ancient to contemporary paintings, tapestries, photos and sculptures. Surprisingly, there were quite a few drawings from Picasso. One of the newly featured exhibitions were the photos of Lucien Clergue.

If you are in Arles most liking you are there for a relaxing holiday in a charming French town - Musee Reattu is both relaxing and charming. I was there during the annual summer photo exhibit which featured the work of Lucien Clergue. The museum set in a historic mansion allows for interesting displays and perspectives. I did not see...

We were surprised by the extent of the collection and the range from renaissance art to modern art including couture. We also didn't expect to see any Picasso works and were pleasantly surprised.

Lots of different kinds of art - especiallly "Arles" artists or paints done or of Artles. The Picasso drawings are very interesting. A lovely, small collection of unique pieces.

This treasure had an interesting mix of modern and contemporary art including many Picasso drawings. Each room was different and was a bit of a treasure hunt.

The Picasso drawings alone justify a visit. I've just framed and hung a hand-printed poster of Picasso's drawings, exhibited in the gallery, to remind me of a wonderful visit. Will return next time I visit Arles.

The museum is housed in a mansion that makes the visit itself interesting. Did not know much about Reattu's art so learned something, and the few Picasso pieces were nice.

Sorry, another bad review from me about a place in Arles. Don't get me wrong, I like Arles. This particular attraction is just a very small town museum with nothing in particular to recommend it. It currently has a lot of late Picasso drawings that ought to be auctioned off on some cruise ship. There are a few good paintings.... More
