    I had visited the old Museum but what pleasant discovery of the new location of the vase of vix with lot more recoil and the top rooms deserve to be visited, I encourage visitors to come and the price is reasonable.

    the Museum is just superb. redone in clear and sober way, we let Guide and advance over the centuries. It is the opportunity to realize that finally we have not invented many things apart from modern technology. the highlight of the show remains the Vix Vase! still as impressive. that is what we would like to tell us her story!

    A super comprehensive Museum from different eras. Full of explanations, well staged; a treat for the eyes! Consider however almost half a day to visit because there are a lot of things.

    Very beautiful Museum, treasure of Vix is worth a visit. By against €7 entry it's much too expensive (much more than the entry for equivalent museums: Dijon, Autun, Chalon sur Saône... that sometimes are even free)

    I learned a lot about the Gaullist civisation. You visit this Museum, see the vase of the Lady of vix offered by the Greeks, then go to Alexia to complete the visit (30km away). Beautiful and rewarding.

    The Museum of Chatillon on Seine reveals extraordinary wealth. Installed in a former hospital it showcases the archaeological treasures of the region: mound of the Lady of Vix and its famous vase but also Gallo-Roman period. The guides are responsible.
