Okay so this is the most famous museum in Arles. But it has reasons to be so, as it holds some of the most important Roman collections. Ten years ago, when Caesar's bust was found, and this is where it went. The collection of amphoras is amazing, but people come from all around the world to see…

In 1957, Picasso was invited to exhibit about sixty drawings, which he donated to the museum in 1971, in addition to the Portrait of Lee Miller in Arles (1937), painted just after Guernica. Augmented with engravings, archives, photographs and posters, the whole is called The Picasso of Arles.”
