The museum is tasteful in both its collection and visiting collections; the museum has a wonderful feel to it, mixing modernity with antiquity to which both play off one another harmoniously. Not to be missed and most definitely supported. The staff is very friendly and...More

We visited when there was less than an hour left before closing time. I was only interested in Van Gogh. We were herded through the Van Gogh portion quickly and left more time in the rest of the building. I was disappointed.

The only thing more amazing than standing in front of this master’s work is standing in front of Picasso’s work, too! Both were on exhibit and both collections were breathtaking. Just go!

Not a lot of Van Gogh here -- about nine (excellent) paintings -- but enough to satisfy the VG vibe of the rest of Arles. You should not go if you are expecting a big Van Gogh museum. But if you like small, well-appointed art...More

We lucked out to find a small exhibit based on the theme of the sun. In addition to Van Gogh paintings there was also Picasso art work and music and video recordings of the American musician Sun Ra.

A modern, spacious art gallery close to the Place Forum. At present there is an exhibition of a few Van Goughs and Picassos that are obvious highlights and quite rare to see in Arles. There's only 1 Van Gogh left in Provence now! Additionally there...More

Got lost to espace vincent museum. Found the fondation - 7 von goghs, 7 picassos and a whole lot of filler paintings. Really underwhelmed but the air conditioning was cold

We arrived early in Arles in order to spend a full morning at the museum, but it doesn't open until 11. Yes, we could have looked for the opening times but didn't expect it to open 2 hours after everything else. There are a few...More

This is worth a visit for the building itself, which is a stylish modern contrast to the historic architecture of the city around it yet sits happily side by side with it. There is also an amazing fountain outside. Inside, the collection is small but...More
