This is another small museum in Avignon, and certainly worthwhile to spend an hour examining the Roman and ancient past of the City.

Brilliant- it looks small on the outside, but the exhibits are superb. Recommend you do not miss this. There are some excellent Greek and Roman statues and pottery as well as post-Roman sculptures and epigraphy.

However, for lovers of Greek and Roman art it offers a few perhaps unexpected discoveries, and the investment of time is modest
