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.

Interesting buildings and rooms. Good selection of art. Nice Picasso drawings. Restrooms are nice too. Worth the trip. Stairs, so be hearty.

most river tour guides skip this museum so you'll probably have to get there on your own but it is really worth it if just for the 50 plus Picasso drawings that he donated to the museum.

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.

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.
