We liked this museum, especially the section where old implements and equipment was displayed. It would be great to have more English explanation, though. Glad we popped in.

I popped into this museum and enjoyed the displays featuring the old Provencal items. It was fun to see these historical items and learn how they were used. It is a small museum and was an especially nice respite from the outside heat.

This is a small provincial museum, so you never know what will be on display. The show on sheep raising was interesting and informative, worth about half an hour. My average rating shouldn't put you off, it's just not the Musee D'Orsay. I love small...More

A good place to visit to learn a bit of local history, and it is also very centrally located. Lots of things to look at, and well worth a visit.

Dear Agsiul2013, Thank you for visiting the Musée des Alpilles. We are sorry for your disappointement about the temporary exhibition Patrem on the first floor. We will try to translate our next temporary exhibitions in english in the future.

Glorious building right in the centre of town, behind the Church ! Well worth a detour and enjoy a drink on the little square facing the Museum before or after a visit.
