  • Our good opinion applies to two sites: archaeological excavations and interpretive centre. First thing that struck us was the friendliness of the staff, it should be underlined, competent, friendly. Then we look at the Museum and the Museum which is superb in the layout and the resources deployed. Small or large will find their account, we will return with our small children.

  • 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.
