  • The treasures from the Vix grave show how advanced the Gauls/Celts were. Not the barbarians that Caesar portrayed in the Gallic Wars. A must see museum.  more »
  • This museum is known for the famous vase of Vix and its archaeological treasures, and thanks to a competent conservative and imaginative, it is through exhibitions and events, a permanent renewal of the old stones.

  • A museum with an attractive presentation. With a masterpiece, the treasure of Vix, with a magnificent tiara and an extraordinary crater. The whole is well put in value and the rest of the collections does not demerit care who bring.

  • Vix vase is definitely worth a visit. The archaeological museum is especially based on the Celtic and Gallo-Roman time.
