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.

With the Avignon Pass it was only €1 to enter the museum per person, so while this was already a must do for me in Avignon that made it even better! It is right on the main road in Avignon and is housed in an...More

Could spend 30 minutes or two hours. Like the contrast of the baroque architecture and the much older collection. Mostly from the local region, which is fascinating. Ok for 12 years and up.

and I say this as an archaeologist....I haven't been in a place so truly boring in many years. The fabulous past of the city is let down big time by basically being warehoused in an old church. Some amazing pieces let down with minimal /...More
