  • Visit if you're in the area and have time. Certainly I wouldn't go just for this museum. No I found it particularly interesting nor the findings. The most impressive is that it was built right where you anakalythfike the old town. I've seen better. The signs are only in French so I need to get audio guide if you don't speak French.

  • Interesting for those who do not know little about archaeology and imagine it to be very interesting for those who know tb. The Museum Park is nice, when I visited there was a festival in the gardens. The Museum is integrated into the Park through glass walls, V is inside and outside the Museum at the same time. Also, the educational route is well signposted. Book some 3 hours for a visit to presentation of the subject.
