    Where else can you see Vincent van Gogh artwork with no lines to wait in and in a very nice, modern gallery? Arles has such an amazing history one small part of which is van Gogh's time there. How app...  more »

    Small but excellently curated collection of Van Gogh works in Arles, where he did much of his key work. Also, displays of other modern artists.  more »

    Very contemporary, inviting museum in the heart of Arles. They have a changing exhibit of Van Gogh works in an exchange program with the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam so you will always see some of his...  more »

    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.

    This felt like a bait and switch. As per the name, we expected substantial Van Gogh... but there were just 7-8 of his paintings, and then room after room after room of Alice Neel. If you want to see Van Gogh, we would recommend the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. It is positively fantastic.

    Very nice, especially during summer. I enjoyed the Van Gogh collection exposed. The explanation were interesting and our guide was an art student which was at the time doing a thesis on Van Gogh.

    Small museum dedicated to some of the works by the late artist as well as rotating exhibits of those who have been influenced by him.

    Not enough Van Gogh, but still worth a visit. One major problem--the absolutely disgraceful whitewashing of the donor's biography. He was an arms dealer who according to the OSS in 1946 was a major recipient of art looted by the Nazis. His plaque at the foundation made it sound like he was a wonderful man with a passion for art. Very bogus.
