  • Very nice modern museum building. The exhibitions are disappointing to the part. Restaurant and Cafe on the first floor with terrace. Bad service and overpriced offer.

  • Since the fresco on the ground, rare Roman mosaic from the entrance to the ride in the floors, we travel in Turkey, Egypt, in the hollow of the waves in fury, or with soft faces of Gypsies. Everything is beautiful!

  • The Museum's collections are very interesting and include various historical periods. Several magnificent Gallo-Roman mosaics to rich and varied patterns reveal the grandeur and beauty of the missing monuments of the city centre. Good time to isolate themselves in a bubble of story and art!

  • Free entry and lots and lots of intriguing exhibits
  • Magnificent pictorial collection, the building is also beautiful and very characteristic of urbanism of the nineteenth century. The visit is nice and quiet because there is no rush.
