Musee des Alpilles, Saint Remy de Provence

Archeology, natural sciences, ethnology, graphic arts & photography exhibits

Featured in: | Updated

Created in 1919, this museum is located inside a former townhouse, the Hôtel Mistral de Montdragon, which dates from the Renaissance period and is classified as an historical landmark. 

An architectural specimen of great quality, the building boasts a remarkable interior courtyard. Its collections are divided into four sections: archaeology, natural sciences, ethnology, graphic arts and photography.

The exhibition offers a journey through time and space and was conceived with the intention of fostering an understanding and respect of today's natural and human landscapes in this portion of Provence that lies between the Rhone, the Durance, and the southern limit of the Alpilles mountains. 

€4.50 entry for adults, free for children under 18. 

Reviews

Visitor comments

  • "I really enjoyed this museum. It had something for a variety of interests. It covered local history but also geological history of the area. I learned so much of the historical culture of St. Remy and that information really gave me context for my stay in the town." - Trip Advisor
  • "This small museum is housed in an interesting historical building. The museum is not only running an interesting exhibition about a post impressionist painter, Jean Baltus but also provides useful information about the building itself, the town and region and archaeological finds. The presentation of the paintings and photographs has been done in an aesthetical manner." - Trip Advisor
  • "This is another site worth the time to visit. Another must see! Learned so much about Van Gogh. Combine your visit with the Roman ruins of Glanum." - Trip Advisor
