This museum is free and has some excellent exhibits, though admittedly we didn't see anything very different from what's on display in similar museums in Italy. The explanations are excellent but one's French has to be up to it as there are no English translations.

This former church contains many beautiful greek and roman carvings, painted vases and the like. Some of the funerary items are moving. It's a very peaceful place. It's free nowadays, under Avignon's new 'liberte, egalite, gratuite' policy for city-run museums.

Very interesting items in this museum. The Roman ones were found nearby, the Greek not so much. Some incredible sculptures and friezes from the Roman era. Costs very little to get in - especially if you have AvignonPass.

We spent a little over 30 minutes enjoying this small museum. It is located in a decommissioned church and houses a nice Greek and Roman collection.

This is a very small archaeological annex to the Musee Calvert. There is only one large hall, plus some bays, containing antique and medieval sculptures, but, as the entrance fee is minimal, it is worth a short visit.

This is the sister museum to the Musee Calvet, and holds their collection of Greek, Roman, and Gallo - Roman art in a lovely small decommissioned church. It's not encyclopedic by any means, but it has stellar examples. Unfortunately our visit was more or less...More

Third time I've seen this one. A fairly large and good collection of ancient artifacts. More satisfying that the bridge by the papal palace.

Not only Greek and Roman sculpture, but pottery and artefacts which are well presented. Many of the exhibits have been acquired in recent years. Perhaps they came to this part of the world during the Napoleonic period.
