The interpretative center immerses you in the conquest of the Gauls by the Romans. At the end of your visit, marvel at the statue of Vercingetorix overlooking the battlefield between the Gauls and the Romans.

  • Everything is done to have a great time: we have a choice either visit with a guide or audio-guide. the latter is available in adult and child so very well adapted can go all day without children get tired; possibility to ride out with the statue of Vercingetorix and the remains 11 min walk and cherry on the cake that day, an activity that rained at all: introduction to basketry brief an extra day!

  • In this sunny and frigid winter day, we chose to visit this museum with our children between 6 and 12 years. Beautiful lecture building, a warm welcome and clear explanations on arrival. The tour is done with audio guide available on the floor, it's rather fun when we understand how it works (should qq more detailed explanations to avoid wasting time). The film in the middle of the tour is rather well done but not recommended for young children because violent enough. However space is provided on the ground floor to occupy children during projection. We cut short the end of the visit, it was getting too long for children. The outdoor reenactment is impressive in a breathtaking landscape. And we had a workshop of discovery of basketry during the school holidays. It was great fun to discover this ancestral activity and to try on a small basket making. The hosts can only be congratulated for their kindness and their patience to send us their passion! We had a great afternoon we finished going greet Vercingetorix at the top of the nearby village. To do!

  • Very nice, clear and concise explanations within the reach of everyone. Audioguide full without being too long. A nice cafeteria with excellent dishes and very affordable prices.

  • Fascinating museum and reconstruction at the site of the last stand of the massesd armies of Gaul against Julius Caesar. This is a core part of the French primary school curriculum and so venue focused on French visitors but great for foreign visitors too . There is a modern museum and reconstruction of Roman seige walls. Good movie reconstructing the battle. Engaging for adults and our children (7rs). Good quality audio guide in several languages (we used mixture if English and french) with versions for adults and children. Interesting activities for children also available. Good shop with books (all french) and replica Roman stuff.
  • A fantastic museum. The visit took almost all day, it was very interesting with audioguide that explained everything. Might be not that good without it. Everyday twice a day there are roman and gallic combat demonstrations and explanations. Good for children and teens
  • Ok, they need to push this to a wider audience. But man they did a live mock up that was amazing and it really gave a great understanding of the Roman military, just wow
  • 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
