  • Seemed expensive and disappointing. There are 8 canvases on display by Van Gogh currently. Not a lot. I get it though... They're not cheap nor easy to get on loan from other larger art museums. What I don't understand is the near complete lack of any other exhibits on his work, life, or time spent in Arles. The tourist office sells a map for 1€ that shows a route you can walk to see a few of the scenes Van Gogh painted around Arles. The Van Gogh center doesn't even explain much about why the museum is located in Arles, never mind tell you anything about how the artist spent his time here or what scenes he liked to paint.
  • Van Gogh's work is some of the most beautiful art work I've seen. Well worth the visit. Plus the foundation featured another artist whose work was absolutely stunning.
  • To see van Goch paintings in the flesh is awesome. Superbly designed building, Lovely staff and great collections.
  • Carries the Van Gogh name to attract visitors although his work is not dominant. Interesting nonetheless.
  • Nice little Contemporary Arts Center in the heart of Arlès. It's worth for its abordable size, the quality of its exhibitions and the building in itself a tasteful renovation of a bourgeois "Hôtel Particulier". I loved The colourful glass installation on the front roof.
