  • The Museum is beautiful, with the works well arranged and it's a journey in history. The Roman ruins of a city, and the arena are among gardens, olive trees give a ' special ' air to visit.

  • For those who did not have the chance or the thing to visit Rome, Ephesus, Leptis Magna, or many other fabulous sites, Archaeological Museum of Nice - Cimiez (Cemenelum, in Roman times) while more modest, gives a remarkable glimpse into the life of the Romans and especially fabulous talent of constructor. There's also whole "pont du Gard" to prove...

  • If you're English, it's all in French with no English guides. It's very small, and not too interesting. However i out back, there's the old ruins and this rescues the visit.
  • Nice.
  • Very interesting for children as for adults. For the children of the workshops "excavation and reconstruction of archaeological objects that have fascinated them. It is true that for the visit of the outdoor site tour would be significant.

  • Very nice site to visit, unfortunately we not were accompanied and it's a shame because we had to miss some details or anecdotes. A little effort on the showroom of object that smells musty.

  • As two young students of 17 years, it was impossible to visit the Museum as we were unaccompanied minors. I find it unacceptable to prevent young people to cultivate a minimum or prevent them from understanding or interested in the history of their region. I have even more difficult to understand that we have an obligation to be accompanied by an adult to be able to visit a Museum at 17.
