  • This museum is very well thought. First, a toy library is provided for children (from 3 years) whose parents would like to visit the only museum. This is very handy (and free and more) for those who, like us, have a child who is not really interested in the Museum. The Museum is very well built. It explains well what happened at Alesia. A film image shows what happened. Too bad that he was not guided tours (I'm not a fan of audio guides). Finally, an explanation of the Gauls and the Romans fighting techniques is explained, in costume and with humor, by people very chocked on the subject. For the most interested, feel free to visit them at the end of their presentation, they are very nice and very always ready to tell you more.

  • Very interesting visit with audio guide. Many explanations. Animation and Demonstration of fighting outdoors that will appeal to children but also to adults. Count at least 2 hours on site to do everything

  • Combining architectural aesthetics, simple explanations and teaching and reenactment of battles, this museopark is place gold. Cornerstone of the history of Gaul and the battles against the Romans. Possibility to qqes km to visit the remnants of a Roman facility.

  • Great place to spend a morning or afternoon. Audio guide in English and other languages help you through the exhibits. Good display of combat techniques- would have been perfect if a little was in English. Good for children and adults alike.
  • Fantastic museum: clever and fun (and in English). Can't recommend highly enough, really explains brilliantly one of the key events of classical history and how its been used and abused since then
  • We just loved the site and architecture. Very helpful staff. Great discovery not only for kids! A must!
  • Great exhibit set in the landscape believed to be the battlefield of the final battle between Julius Caesar and the Gauls led by Vercingetorix. Audioguide in multiple languages.
  • really excellent experience. english translation in the museum was very well done. The enactment was done in french so didn't understand it but was still good to see the fighting. price was very reasonable.
