Built around the ruins of a first-century Roman home, Vesunna preserves and protects this piece of history, while educating visitors about era. The home and several artifacts from daily life were discovered in 1959. The museum--a glass and steel structure with an umbrella-like roof--opened in 2003. From raised catwalks, you can see models and descriptions of what the house looked like in its heyday. You also can learn about the Roman city that once existed here.

  • A very complete Museum, very airy so no risk of scramble or feel suffocated. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Everything has been designed so that wheelchairs/strollers can enjoy the tour. Really, a visit that we do not regret.

  • This museum is an exhibition of the exhibits found during excavations on the Roman sites of Perigueux (Vesunna). Some pieces are pretty. The exposed parts are named by too short explanations. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The parking lot is almost always full. Park the small alleys around. Do not forget to see the Tower of Vesone which is at 200 m.

  • An exceptional and rare archaeological site. Beautiful surfaces where you do not feel suffocated by the world. A beautiful green oak tree is located at the entrance of the Museum. Allow a good half day to appreciate the discoveries you will make there.
