  • Fascinating display highlighting the history of Arles from the Late Neolithic through the decline of the Romans. So many New discoveries just in this century like the 30 m barge uncovered after a flood in the Rhône in 2002. Most descriptions are not in English so I would suggest getting the auto guide which was excellent. Loved the open and spacious building layout conducive to letting your eye lead you to the next interesting exhibit. I did not find the large area of sarcophagus at the end very interesting but the tiles were. Great bargain with the Arles monument and museum pass, Take “A” bus for 1 euro from George Clemenceau Boulevard.
  • Great archeological museum about the Roman history of the region of Arles, France. Artifacts including some fabulous mosaics and a 2000 year old barge pulled from the bottom of the Rhone. Also has models of the Arles colosseum and theatre. You can visit those ruins in Arles also.
