About Musee De L'arles Et De La Provence Antique, Arles

The rich history of the small city of Arles has been remarkably recorded with great care in this famous museum. Built in 1995, the modern and lovely cobalt-blue building of the museum is a beauty in itself. It stands proudly at the edge of what used to be the Roman Chariot Racing Track.

  • The Musee de l'Arles et de la Provence Antique is home to a number of striking Roman sculptures and a large collection of other antiquities.
  • The museum also houses a huge compilation of Christian and Pagan art. This compilation includes absolutely stunning mosaics.
  • A major attraction at the museum these days is the recently discovered ancient boat, known as the Arles Rhone 3, which is known to be about 2000 years old.
  • The museum provides a wonderful view of the Chariot Track and the shape of the museum.

The museum can be visited per your choice in two ways:

  • Chronologically, running from Prehistory, 2500 B.C. situated at the entrance stretching to the end of Antiquity, 6th century towards the exit.
  • Thematically, corresponding to the characteristics of the museum's various collections such as daily life, trade, the economy, embellishments. 

Preserving history with great charm seems to be the style of Musee de l'Arles et de la Provence Antique which the elegant and spacious building seems to follow through and through.

  • A good museum showing many treasures from the Roman period in Arles. Give yourself at least two hours here. Situated slightly out of the main town area but an easy 10 minutes walk.

  • Definitely worth the visit! The new section with exhibit of Roman cargo ship was extraordinary. Displayed in a narrative style, it offered a holistic perspective that made history come alive.

  • With Arles' strong Roman Imperial presence, this is a must see! Unexpected exhibits include a Roman cargo-ship excavated from the nearby river. The museum includes displays of most aspects of life and death. The mosaics are a must see, as are the examples of gold and silver jewelry. Also unexpected is a verified life-bust of Julius Caesar that was found nearby. If you are interested in Romans, this museum needs to be on your bucket-list.

  • This one of the better museums that I have ever gone too...and thats saying alot as I've been to many museums. I hope to make it back to Arles some day and visiting this museum again will be at the top of my list. Don't miss this museum, even if you are not a 'museum nut' like I am, it's not huge and overwhelming, but has some gems you aren't going to see any where else such as the a Roman era river cargo boat recovered from the bottom of the Rhone river. Fantastic.

  • Free of charge for students, which was great for me traveling at my own expense. Very good visual description on all artifacts, especially good documentary on recovery of the roman boat. Strongly recommended!!
