    • Unique in France. The remains of a rich Gallo-Roman residence in the architecture of Jean Nouvel. Exceptionally highlighted antique collections. A large umbrella hovers above the walls of the "Domus de Vésone" which he protects. A thematic route explains "the city and public life" then "the house and private life". From the museum's mezzanines, a spectacular view opens onto the remains. Beyond, the tall glass walls reveal the landscaped park of the Tour de Vésone and the remains of the rampart from the 4th century. The building is like a window open to the past buried under the modern city.

    An excellent museum covering the Gallo-Roman period on the site of a Roman town house, the excavation of which is both visible and well explained. It is worth watching the short video of the changes to the house between the first and third centuries, set alongside and in the context of the discoveries during the archeological digs, to understand better what one sees. Highly recommended!

    A well provisioned, interpreted and preserved Roman villa with many fascinating objects of art and utility preserved. On the grounds are the ruins of an enormous temple to the local deity. To think people built such huge towers two thousand years ago is impressive.

    We stopped here originally to kill time before checking into our B&B and boy are we glad we did. This is a wonderful museum! It is full of artifacts, and really provides a window into how the Romans lived in this area of France. It has to been seen to really be appreciated. You will not be disappointed if you visit!

    This Gallo-Roman museum is unique in that the glass walled building protects the site which consists of ruins of a once beautiful home, the Vesone domus, erected in the 1st century. The museum has 3...
