Exclusive museum. During our July visit there was a temporary treasure collection from the National Library in Paris - it was very interesting.

A comprehensive overview of the early settlers of Arles, including pre-Roman populations as well as the Romans and early Christians. Includes a very large Roman dugout that was recovered intact from the nearby Rhone river. Unfortunately, there are no audioguides and very few translations into...More

Not at the museum, no, but the city centre isn't far away and you'll find plenty of places to eat there.
