  • Very beautiful ancient art collections offered. You will travel at the time gallo-Roman with hundreds of rooms, many of which come from the region. Very nice collection of Etruscan vases in all shapes from Italy. You will also visit the ancient Greece as well as the pharaonienne Egypt. See

  • We spent a little over 30 minutes enjoying this small museum. It is located in a decommissioned church and houses a nice Greek and Roman collection.  more »
  • This museum is a marvel of ancient art, as well as that of Arles, with this supplement of soul, because the staff is dedicated to visitors. This is so rare at the level of the museums is noted. Thanks to the team.

  • An excellent, small museum. The building is impressive and some fascinating statues inside. We'll worth dropping in if travelling from the train station to the main sights
  • Awesome, old school
  • My cousin died here
  • Very nice welcome by the two officers present Sunday afternoon. The visit which has been commented on by Mr Stéphane was very interesting. The lapidary Museum remains a bit empty and a lack of soul

  • Pretty façade from the 18th century to a former Jesuit church built with this beautiful stone ochre of Avignon.
