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 building itself was amazing. It is a 15th century former Grand Priory for the Order of Malta. 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. Also there is a tremendous collection of designs by the fashion designer Christian LaCroix, be sure to look in the drawer below... More

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.

An eclectic collection housed in a lovely old building. The 18th/19th century pieces were not really my thing but they were very tastefully presented. A small but interesting collection of Picasso paintings, all executed at about the same time and on similar theme, inc. beautiful drawing of his mother. We used the Arles Pass ticket to get in. Had I... More

Fairly eclectic collection. Little is really outstanding, but it's worth a quick visit. The building is quite interesting and the decoration and artistic adornments make it worth a view.

large art collection owned by Jacques Reattu who was from Arles. Collection presented well. A number of school children were learning about the museum the morning we were there. Nice older building. At one time Picasso had a showing at this museum and his drawings are displayed.
