While it's not the Louvre, this collection set in a historic building has some interesting artifacts from the Roman era that are worth viewing, and at an inexpensive (I think 2 euros?) fee. You do not need any more than 30-45 minutes to review the...More

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

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.

Desperate to get out of the rain (Provence in May!) we dashed into this former church not expecting very much but were pleasantly surprised. It now houses a small but interesting collection of Greek and Roman artifacts (sculpture and pottery) many of which were discovered...More

My partner and I are not avid museum-goers but stopped by this tiny little refurbished old church building and were pleasantly surprised. You don't need more than 20 minutes to wander around and marvel at the ancient Greek and Roman statues and artefacts. Entry is...More

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.
