Located in the Renaissance-era Hôtel Mistral de Mondragon along Rue Carnot in the old town, the Musée des Alpilles provides a comprehensive look at St-Rémy and the surrounding areas.

One notable exhibit focuses on cicadas, a symbol of Provence famously associated with the author Frédéric Mistral. Additionally, the neighbouring Hôtel de Sade showcases local archaeological discoveries, further enriching visitors’ understanding of the region’s historical depth.
