Although we got here at the very end of a museum and ruin packed day, (we still had one more attraction on our museum pass) I still enjoyed the collection of Reattu's art. There were some pretty intriguing pieces.
The Musée Réattu (Reattu Museum) must be on your itinerary when in Arles. We loved it. This is primarily an art museum including works by Arles-born painter Jacques Réattu, original paintings by Van Gogh, drawings by Picasso, as well a great display of sculptures, contemporary art and fascinating photographic collection. Don't miss it.
We went into this museum because it was included in our Advantage Pass and were stunned by the building and by the contemporary photography exhibition we found on the top floor. Picaso does little for us although it was nice to see that he had donated several works to the museum - and the sketch of his mother demonstrated other... 更多
Barely anything is in english and unless you are a big art fan, there's not much to see. Don't waste your time and go see some of the other attractions.
Very small collection that doesn't really say much about the templars originating in the area. Very small art collection, nice Picasso drawings. Currently a photo portrait exhibit. Nice. But take it or leave it. Was disappointing.
The building that houses the Musée Réattu was once the headquarters of the Hospitaliers de Saint-Jean-De-Jerusalem, the soldier monks who later became the Order of Malta and who settled in Arles in 1117.

Better than I'd expected, saw this on the Museum Pass, and was very impressed by the wonderful array of works. Picasso, Black and White Photography, sculpture, modern art, and more. Confusing going from exhibit space to space, and may have missed something. Spent most of our time in the photography exhibit, recognizing many faces, in beautiful old photos. There was... 更多
there are some stunning art pieces held in this museum, in particular the collection I enjoyed most was the black and white photography. My motel was opposite, so I noticed a consistent flow of people visiting.
I found myself lost and looking for what I missed. I think some rooms were closed. Also the displays are in two separate parts of the building. My favorite display was the Christian laCroix sketches, I think it's temporary. There are also Picassos, some are not too freaky, I guess his style developed and didn't stop where I think it... 更多
A somewhat confusing labyrinth of exhibits, it has a lot to offer. The photography and modern art were the highlights for us. Staff helpful on a limited basis only. Bring your French language helper if you don't know the basics.
