  • A small museum, entirely dedicated to underwater archaeology. Because Agd is very ancient port, different underwater finds are showing here, together with an indication of who/when/where found treasures. A separate room is dedicated to hard work underwater seekers their equipment, etc. the highlight of the Museum is considered to be the statue of Jefeba. She was found in the Bay of Agde, handed in the Louvre, and returned here only when built this museum building.

  • Hello everyone, the Museum of the Ephebe is a beautiful museum that traces this Greek city in a modern way. But the most beautiful Museum and the most important is that of Agde in the old town but it can people interested then that is the most complete and the most beautiful on both the historical and cultural so to do. Go to the tourist office on the mail Jean-Jaurès in AGDE. Ask a historical path and your children in the form of games will be busy intellectually and physically more it opens a whole morning mind the discovery of the middle age of the styles and the life of the time: so to see.
