  • We had an excellent experience here - it's a small, local museum but the ruins are interesting, well documented (English notes are near the door as you go out to tour the site) and in our case we had a really fantastic, child friendly, experience with the temporary exhibition on the lower floor. The permanent exhibition is small, but as an an initial introduction to Roman ruins; as it was for us; well executed and relatable for our children. Not the Paris or London museum of natural history but great for what it is.
  • Excellent and well documented ruins with a museum offering a display of various every day life objects, tomb stones and life style information from Cemelenum. A must see!
  • Nice Museum and also the park near it
  • 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.
