  • very informative Museum, a beautiful reconstruction, either of the battle, weapons, living in also restoring the landscape at the time and the little more audio guides that our children have loved

  • What a nice surprise. Nice Museum that allows to recall this famous battle of Alesia. Everything is fully recovered in its context in a playful way. Interesting movie. We learn many things pleasantly. A supplement with the gallo-Roman remains on the heights.

  • visit to the Museum that traces the battle of Alesia between Gauls and Romans in 52 BC. Reproductions of clothing, weapons and other accessories of the battle, as well as posters and videos explaining the strategies of the two opposing camps succeed on a floor. A hearing aid is provided at the entrance to the course to understand the various tables. A 20 minute film shows the two protagonists involved in this seat which lasted two months. A staging of the Roman camp is to visit outside. And a gallo Roman excavation site is visible on the heights of Alise ste Queen. Vercingetorix is sits on a high pedestal. Educational tour for all ages.

  • 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.
  • Really beautiful place. The exposition was very interesting. Even our small kids enjoyed the the Roma spectacles and show. The building has a very nice architecture that fits in the surroundings. A must visit for anybody interested in the ancient history of Europe.
