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.

We visited here on the multi- ticket as it is next door to the Roman Baths. We would not have made an effort otherwise. It is a perfectly nice gallery but not much of the art appealed to our tastes. There is a good view down the river from the upper floor& I did approve of the nice clean toilets... More

Our family enjoyed visiting this small but lovely museum/gallery as part of our Arles Pass (available from the Tourist Office). There were some great Picasso paintings which were worth seeing (Picasso is always pleasing for the kids). An added bonus was that it was very quiet and not over crowed (we were often the only people in the room). The... More

Although, not everything in the museum can attract people, it is still nice and cosy. The fist floor tells about Reattu himself and the order of Malta. The second floor is divided between classic painters and modern painters and sculptures. The third floor is a photography display (no my thing really). I would suggest to get a combined ticket for...

This small museum was an unexpected find in Arles. The building itself, the former Grand Priory of the Order of Malta, is wonderful. Full of unexpected corners and views through windows. It was bought by Jacques Reattu in 1796 as a place to live and work and now houses some of his works in addition to other things. The Picassos,... More

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
