This is the art museum of Arles. Across a nice old building which once was a centre for the Knights of the Cross of Malta there is a fine collection of art and a mix of both classical and modern works presented together.
This museum is an interesting mixture of an older and more modern collection. Some is very special and interesting - other parts not so. The building itself is quite special - with superb Rhone views. Our visit was slightly marred by a noisy school party. No cafe.
Part of the 11 Euro ticket you can purchase at the tourism office, otherwise it is an 8 Euro entry price. They have a few paintings from Picasso and the painter the museum is named after. There are also a few modern works of art over the 2 floors of the building.
Beautiful museum. Some nice Picasos and the exhibition was well worth going to. It was unexpected to find such a high quality museum of art in such a small town. Was a delightful visit.

For a cross sectional glimpse of both historical works esp by Reattu himself through to contemporary multi media work go to the Musee Reattu. Really easy to move through the salles numbering 30 in all over three floors with great vistas on the river, the central courtyard and other areas as you go.
Picasso donated several drawings to this museum, because he liked the town and its bullfighting so much. There are a few 19th century portraits, but it concentrates mostly on contemporary artists. The building itself is interesting and worth looking at.
