  • A visit to book to lovers of local Ethnography. The collection is large enough and appropriate explanations. We particularly enjoyed the works of Cyril HATT scattered throughout the visit. The exhibition dedicated to the anonymous case is also very well documented. The building is only an interesting discovery.

  • The Museum is located in the city centre of Rodez and this is one of the few activities of Rodez open Sunday. Admission is coupled with another Museum of Rodez, it's a pity that we can not have a one-way ticket to a more attractive price. The Museum is nice and well presented. It tells the story of Rodez and the surrounding area since prehistory. The building is beautiful with a beautiful courtyard.

  • Do not stop at the modern storefront without any charm. You will be surprised of the harmony of the places and the amazing collection of standing stones and other architectural elements; If you stay a few days or come back, remember to ask the Annual Pass which gives you unlimited access to several museums in the city for €20. (including Museum relieves)

  • Very nice museography for this superbly preserved site, an increase in time that allows to absorb most of the history of the region
