    • 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.

    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!
