Very interesting to see the artists from the Arles area, including Reattu. The museum itself is in a lovely building with views over the river. The collection of Picassos is impressive, as is the more modern art. Worth a visit, particularly using a combination or a Passeport Avantage ticket, which gets you in to the other museums and attractions.

Varied selection of artists who worked in the area, particularly Reattu himself. Picasso's interesting as ever with his work.

In a medieval building, this little and cosy museum has an interesting collection of Picasso drawings and the major works of the excellent photographer Lucien Clergue.

Great space, old priory on banks of Rhone, Réattu's works admittedly left us a little cold but there are plenty of other Arles related artists as well, though the juxtaposition of 18thC and modern installations can jar somewhat. Best are the Picasso works , drawings , lino cuts, and small portraits that he donated in '71 after an exhibition there.... More

The building is beautiful, worth a visit of several hours just to explore the rooms and views out the windows and experience the remarkable architecture....love the gargoyles. The exhibits themselves are also wonderful and there are a lot of them. The history provided (in English as well!) was very helpful. I never knew that much about the Knights of Malta... More

The artwork was absolutely stunning. What a treat to see many Picasso paintings I never knew existed! As well, the photographs by Lucien Clergue are incredible. I cannot recommend this art experience enough!

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. It was an ah ha moment for us and since the Picasso Paris museum continues to delay its reopening it was a joy... More

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.
