  • This is a very nicely done ethnographic museum that has only recently re-opened after major renovations. We spent several hours here and enjoyed the exhibits in spite of the scarcity of English...

  • Freshly arriving in Arles, we did not have a detailed plan of action on what to see. After parking in front of the large Roman amphitheater, we walked a short distance to the Museon Arlaten as I have found that the most interesting museums are the local/city ones, that focus on the unique aspects of the local culture. I was wonderfully surprised by the Museon Arlaten, in fact it was one of the nicest and well design museums I have ever visited (out of hundreds). What impressed me most, was the care and attention to presenting the various art and artefacts to the visitors. The style and manner created a visual interest that would inherently attract one to look at it more closely, therefore gaining a greater appreciation of what was being presented. Additionally, the architecture and layout of the building is equally of interest and striking, and one needs to look around and consider the plan/walk throughout the building, how it transports visitors along a journey within its three floors. The items presented are of interest relating to the unique history of the area (note it is minimally focused on Roman times and more on 15th century onwards). Well done to all involved in (re) designing this museum and it is well worth a visit.
  • Amazingly designed museum. Really interesting with nice things to see.
