  • A unique Museum since 1997, the Gallo-Roman area hosts an ever-growing audience. And for good reason, its collections are particularly notable. Large boats from the Roman era, discovered in an exceptional State of preservation and a rich archaeological material from excavations of the site of Pommeroeul, there are presented through a new and dynamic museography. All visitors seeking their roots can go back in time to meet gestures and objects from their distant ancestors. The vicus (village) of Pommeroeul, originally the largest part of the Museum's collections, was once a secondary agglomeration enjoying a special position at the crossing of a road (Bavay-Blicquy) and a river (La Haine). This situation probably made him a commercial and artisanal role leading to the areas north of the ancient city of Bavay. Burial of the vicus in wetland and its fortuitous discovery when the work of digging the new Mons-Condé canal, today enable us by remains amazing, better understand the navigation, technical know-how and the various aspects of ancient life. The floor to the Gallo-Roman space objects is a 'Museum-temple', nor a primarily recreational space. He "lets talk" objects, by bringing together scientific knowledge and knowledge of the public without extreme simplification, and clearly distinguishing the authentic objects of reconstructions. The object is explained, animated,... using techniques using interactivity, the image, the drawing, the model or the text. More on travels back in time, more the place comes alive, it is scientific logic that guides the Museum course: knowledge builds on specific discoveries that allow gradually to reconstruct the lifestyle and habits of our Gallo-Roman ancestors. More it ascends the floors, we advance in the privacy of the objects in the collection, as if it had a time travel from today until the second century materials, textures and natural colors used are in direct relation to the themes. The wickers, plant of wet areas treated in a contemporary way, bring back life, lost in time, around the remains... Guided by boats from the spatial perspective, the visitor zooms freely, with or without guide, long from an aerial view of the site via boats, ending with evocations of the everyday life during antiquity. It is through a character, a boatman, that you go back and time. He accompanies the visitor and tells him his story, graphic on video. Floor by floor, it revived the loading dock, fishermen and the daily life, while leaving a strong emotional dimension to the ancient artifacts. The Museum also wishes to offer to each visitor a level of information corresponding to their expectations. The reception of visitors is no slouch. At the entrance of the Museum, it is possible to acquire an 'intelligent' ticket: a sesterce which will allow it to operate the various video terminals that punctuate the Museum. Shop is also selling many books devoted to archaeology and beautiful reconstructions of ancient objects.
