We went to see the Van Gogh paintings and were pleasantly surprised to find Picasso paintings and many other modern artists. It is a modern museum with a great book shop, lifts, and clean toilets.

This is a definite "must see" when visiting Arles and the south of France. The museum gives a thorough history of the area with an emphasis on the Roman Empire and its influence in the area. The recently discovered (2010) and preserved Roman barge is...More
