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.

  • The museum is very accessible from all points of view. Very welcoming place. Accessibility to any type of disability. The set design allows you to delve into the famous Gallic battle-defeat without forgetting the various events that took place during these two summer months of the year 52 BC. A nice exhibition of playmobil (Romans, Germains vs. Gauls) completes the permanent course. It allows children a dive into the history of battle. Some unusual characters have crept among roman or Gallic soldiers and this little research allows the children to uncover many details that they would not have discovered otherwise. Bravo I highly recommend the visit.

  • A fun and interactive route, especially accompanied by the audioguide, which allows you to follow the course of the Battle of Alesia step by step, after having properly introduced the strategies and the arming of the forces involved. Do not miss the film which is very well done and where, voluntarily, Vercingetorix does not look at all like Asterix, then that no image or description has reached us. Also do not miss the reconstruction of the Roman camp outside, as well as the huge statue of Vercingetorix and the excavations of the Nearby Oppidum of Alesia, on the hill above the Village of Alise-Sainte-Queen.

  • we travel with family, and enjoy the museum, very nice and playful, actually it may lack "a permanent collection" but the exhibits are just perfect (between replicas and original pieces!), the "modern art" of the building can shock (personally I hate modern art ...) but once inside and on the roof to admire the places of the battle at 360 degrees it's just wahou!! the reproduction of the Roman fortifications was also magnificent and just, also only black spot the lack of animation, a person in retreat of Roman costume or galois at first fortification to explain their operation would have p too ^^ (in at the same time we visit a Friday morning off the school holiday period...) we also eat at carnyx the kitchen was good the only black point is the price 14 ' a hair expensive but it's still a museum restaurant last black dot (well not too black :p) I thought I had direct access to the highway, but that nenni! an hour's drive by the department and village (it's tourism and pretty I do not regret them by the way but I thought has more direct access)

  • Firstly the restaurant is superb. The food in the set menu deals is excellent. The museum is good I'd you don't already know the details. It tells the story well but is light on artefacts
  • Having seen a brilliant documentary about the battle and museum, it was a big letdown. No proper evidence of the site being genuine was made clear (postholes and debris) and there is growing evidence it was somewhere else entirely. The building also needs acoustic deadening to reduce the very harsh noise when children just exited and enjoying themselves are in the central area. Shop and café good, but this is no surprise in France!
  • Interesting museum. We spent 4 hours here with kids of 13 and 11.
  • Informative museum which kept the kids interested for hours. Audio guides were very helpful, there is a kids audio guide which kept our youngest (5 yrs) interested the whole time. The second site, is a must too.
  • 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.
