Made the trip all the way to Les Baux to visit the museum. When we arrived there was a sign up that it is closed for renovation. No mention of this closue on the website, or when it will re-open.

If you are in Les Baux, this little museum is well worth seeking out. We might have missed it if I hadn't been idly wandering, waiting for my husband to take a photo of the view. It has permanent displays of Santons - the traditional...More

Open daily throughout the year and free of charge, a brief visit to this museum of "santons" or figures for the nativity scene offers a unique view of the Les Baux traditional craft. There are figures from the 17 th, 18 th and 19 th...More

This was a nice find around a corner in Les Baux. The old santons and the descriptions and explanations are very interesting. Although small this is a better option than visiting a paying Santons exhibition and having to buy from the people as well.

Nice for a brief overview of santons: small hand painted clay figures. Supposedly of the Nativity scene, but there were some of everyday life as well. Very charming, I must say and I like the ones where they depict people leaning into the strong mistral...More

This small, free museum is worth a look. It nicely illustrates the local tradition of making Nativity figures and setting them in Les Baux. It was very crowded with a tour group when we were there and some of the displays are hard to see...More
