Arles Museum of Antiquity

Major collection of Roman artifacts



The “Musée de l’Arles antique” or “Musée départemental Arles antique” or “Musée de l’Arles et de la Provence antiques” is an archeological museum housed in a modern building designed and built in 1995 by the architect Henri Ciriani, at Arles in the Bouches-du-Rhône département of France.

The museum houses a large collection of antiquities, including monumental Roman sculptures from the local region. Among the exhibits is a model of the multiple overshot water mills which existed at Barbegal, and have been referred to as “the greatest known concentration of mechanical power in the ancient world”.
