    This is a museum that was thought to back the archaeology of our accessible areas for children and interesting for us adults. The last show on local archaeology in the form of underground raviera small and large! Do not hesitate to ask for a guided tour, the Museum teams are passionate! A lot of activities during the year, sign up on facebook!

    A unique Museum since 1997, Gallo-Roman space hosts a bigger crowd. And for good reason, its collections are particularly noteworthy. Of large vessels from the Roman era, discovered in an exceptional State of preservation and a rich archaeological material from excavations of the site of St.Petersburg, are presented through a new and dynamic Museum. All visitors seeking their roots can go back in time to meet gestures and objects of their distant ancestors. The vicus (village) of St.Petersburg, originally the largest part of the Museum's collections, was once a secondary settlement, benefiting from a privileged position, at the junction of a road (Bavay-Blicquy) and a river (La Haine). This situation probably gave him a commercial and artisanal role leading to areas north of the ancient city of Bavay. Burial of the vicus in wet land and its chance discovery during the excavation of the new canal Mons-Condé, allow us today, by remains amazing, better understand the navigation, the technical know-how and the various aspects of ancient life. Speech to the Gallo-Roman space objects is a "Museum-temple" or a mainly recreational space. He "let" objects, by bringing together scientific knowledge and knowledge of the public, without oversimplification, and clearly distinguishing the authentic objects of reconstructions. The purpose is explained, animated,... by means of techniques using interactivity, the image, the drawing, the model, or text. More we go back in time, more the place comes alive, it's scientific logic that guides the Museum course: knowledge builds on specific breakthroughs that allow little by little to reconstruct the lifestyle and habits of our Gallo-Roman ancestors. More you climbed the floors, we advance in the privacy of the objects in the collection, as if it was a temporal trip today until the second century materials, textures and natural colors used are directly related to the mentioned themes. The wickers, plant of wet areas treated in a contemporary way, bring back life, lost in time, around the remains... Guided by the boats of the spatial point of view, the visitor zooms freely, with or without guide, long from an aerial view of the site via boats, and ends with evocations of daily life in antiquity. It is through a character, a boatman, that we go back so time. He accompanies the visitor and tells him his story, graphic presentation on video. From floor to floor, he revived the jetty, fishermen and the daily life, while leaving a strong emotional dimension to the old objects. The Museum also wants to offer each visitor a level of information corresponding to their expectations. The reception of the visitor is not outdone. At the entrance of the Museum, it is possible to acquire an 'intelligent' ticket: a sesterce which will allow it to operate the different video terminals that punctuate the Museum. The shop also is selling many books devoted to archaeology and beautiful reconstructions of ancient objects.
