I recently moved to the area and thought I would travel around to see the sites. I came across Camp des Milles through TripAdvisor and thought it was definitely worth the trip. Arriving, only speaking a little French at the time, I communicated with staff...More

Easy to get to from aix, we came here one morning and ended up staying for hours. The exhibition is really interesting and thought provoking. Audio guide is excellent. I struggle with history but the tour explains things really well putting everything into context.

We arrived about an hour and a half before closing and our only regret is not having more time to explore. The haunting building was explained through a thoughtful audioguide. This is an unmissable piece of history. Leave at least 2.5 hours to explore! The...More
