“Small Museum in a Great Old Building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Right by the river, the Musee Reattu offers an array of art work from modern installations to 16C-18C paintings to Picasso sketches to costumes by La Croix. We enjoyed the building as well. If you are in the mood for a short museum trip this is one to visit.

“what a treasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Rick Steves totally missed on this one...not even one star???! This was a marvelous and beautiful Museum with brilliant curation...interesting modern art situated perfectly with the more ancient. I could not believe that there was Christian La Croix exhibit to tie in with the Picassos! It boggled my mind to see all that lush extravagant costuming...what a treat!

“Modern art”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

We only give this museum an average rating because we are not into modern art. If a picture of one horizontal line is art I am not sure where it gets the name art. Two horizontal lines are of course more difficult and takes longer. Three staright horizontal lines is becoming more complex. Four straight horizontal lines obviously became too taxing for the artist because he stopped at four. If Picasso is you man then there are plenty of examples of his work here. We did however appreciate the works of Christian Lacroix

“Picassos and costumes by Christian Lacroix!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

We were really impressed by the imaginative displays in this gallery. The building is beautiful and curator makes the most of the spaces. The master gave the place paintings and prints. Plenty to see and worth a detour.

“Wish I knew what it said.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

For just arriving in Arles and not enough history background, I found the all French plaques perplexing. It would have been helpful if someone could translate or at least give an overview for what we saw. Ignorance is not bliss.
