  • This recent Museum presents a superb collections of antiquity in Arles. They are arranged in chronological order, the highlight of the Museum is certainly the Roman barge thirty metre long which was extracted from the sediment of the Rhone in 2007. Commercial activity in the Port of Arles at the time of the Romans is beautifully rendered. The film which traces the rehabilitation of the wreck is captivating. Note to finish the splendor of the mosaics exhibited towards the end of the Museum.
