  • 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.
