Beautiful setting nice bldg and garden but a little disappointed by the info provided (or not) which only appears on a board in Van Gogh's room. Don't ask any questions to the rude staff at the entrance. I would recommend the visit since it is beautiful and educational, but must say I left a little disappointed.

This museum really brings home the message about Van Gogh's mental illness. He was in this asylum for a year and painted many of his well known works here. We found his bedroom a little chilling. It makes you wonder to what extent the world has moved on.

Small but peaceful cloister and garden, with Van Gogh's room an added bonus..we loved it, but I'm sure if you are looking for and experience this might not fit the bill..the entry is cheap though and combined with a visit to the Roman site of Glanum, which is walking distance away, well worth it

Definitely worth visiting, beautiful setting, and well-presented information and pictures that help you understand the work produced by Van Gogh during his stay here.

beautiful peace, tranquil and smashing climax to the moving words from Van Gogh's letters on the walk from the town

Do not miss if you have any interest in psychology, evolution of mental health treatment and practices, and understanding this period of time in Van gogh's life and development as an artist. Beautiful grounds, as well...very tranquil place.

Loved how well kept this place is, really tranquil, with a small field of lavender (at least in the first week of July!) at the back. This place obviously is a sobering one; patients' art - made during therapy sessions - are available for purchase in the shop. Very moving, some beautiful, others haunting. Van Gogh's replicas on site are... More

This psychiatric hospital/monastery is well worth the nominal entrance fee if you have any interest in artist Vincent Van Gogh. With screams of present day patients rising from behind the walls in this otherwise tranquil setting, one is transported back to a time when a troubled Van Gogh was treated here and created his masterpieces. Follow the well marked paths... More

I didn't know if a guided tour is required it needed to be booked at the tourist board and we had just walked the 15-20 mins following the Van Gogh trail from the tourist board! Never the less a lovely peaceful and reflective place to be.

It's a beautiful setting and worth the walk from town. I can understand people finding this fascinating. If you're staying locally and looking for places to spend your day, I would definitely put it on your list.
