    Description

    This museum in the heart of the town’s historical centre was created in 1919 and has recently been refurbished. It features a remarkable inner courtyard, watched over by Ossip Zadkine’s sculpted bust of Vincent van Gogh. The museum’s permanent exhibition takes visitors on a fascinating journey through the rich facets of local history and culture, giving an insight into the landscapes of the Alpilles region and contemporary life here. Themes include the area’s natural history, with fossil displays; modern native plant species and animals such as snails and cicadas; stone quarrying and clay for pottery; traditional agricultural activities like growing olives, vines, and cereals or sheep farming; cultivation of more recent crops including teasel thistles, seeds, and vegetables; traditional dress and festivals, and Camargue-style bullfighting. The last two rooms are devoted to typography and printing, illustrating the establishment’s new focus on printed works and contemporary engraving.
