4.0
#2 of 14 in Museums in Arles
The courtyard of the former Arles hospital, now named Espace Van Gogh, is a cultural and academic center for Vincent van Gogh's works, including several masterpieces. Van Gogh was brought to the hospital in 1888 after he cut off his own ear lobe. The two-story hospital features a central French garden. White chalk gallery arcades are reminiscent of Arabic architecture. To visit Espace Van Gogh and other attractions in Arles, use our Arles holiday builder app.

  • The Espace Van Gogh is the location of the hospital where Van Gogh was treated for his ear. It looks very similar to the way it looked when Van Gogh was there.  more »
  • Silly exposition of 19th C photos of the new machine age... But in Russia! One VG of a bird. Alas. Decent Gift shop but a waste of admission price overall.  more »

  • Good free spot for pictures. The area is opened later (at least 7pm30) than the exhibition which I did not visit. Hard to get pictures look like Van Gogh painting in the summer because of the leaves of the trees. Lack some bench to have a seat but there is a cafe downstairs. The stairs are at the right of the entrance. There is a shop selling really cheap post cards.
  • Excellent place for fans of the artist. The place doesn’t charge tourists to enter but there are a few souvenir shops where you can purchase little items. Come early and you get to avoid the crowds!
