  • At the entrance they were afraid to visit the Archaeological Museum and the usually boring was a pleasant surprise. The presentation of the exhibits is designed to interest visitors. An example to follow!

  • Very well done. From the Mesolithic, Roman, numismatics, temporary exhibitions. We have spent just 40 minutes to visit and regretted it. Sometimes far better to have museums with a few pieces but well explained (like this), that museums with thousands of throwaway objects without explanation and without being valued.

  • Two areas: the first underground, with ancient walls, noble and ancient remains, a modern idea of Museum that rather than show of things tends to make suggestions; the second, on the ground floor of the building, with a good number of relics of the Roman city, well recorded and well presented some reconstructions of environments and a set of drawers nice that will appeal especially to children. Nice

  • 95% of all information provided is in French and Italian. Therefore not suitable for anyone that requires information in English. Highly disappointing that no one at the entrance informed us beforehand!
  • The Aosta Valley Regional Archaeological Museum (in French, Musée archéologique régional de la Vallée d'Aoste), abbreviated to MAR, is an archaeological museum in Aosta. The Museum is located in the place where once stood in Roman Porta Principalis Sinistra. Under the Museum, in fact, excavations were conducted (ongoing) to unearth the remains of the door. Part of these excavations is already accessible via walkways within the Museum. Already fortified House of nobles Vaudan, the building has hosted since 1633 the Visitandine convent, founded at the behest of Marquis Pierre-Philibert Roncas and his wife Emérentienne de Vaudan, who intended to give a home to the Sisters of santa Jeanne Françoise Frémiot de Chantal (Jeanne de Chantal). From 1802 became Barracks Challant, while some wings of the Palace were used for various purposes, from stable, in theater until stock of agricultural tools. Today the barracks was decommissioned and the building houses the regional archaeological museum. The collections the Museum has many archaeological findings in the entire Valle d'Aosta which are arranged in chronological order. Prehistory the prehistoric consist of funeral ornaments, glass, clay pots and anthropomorphic carved stele. This collection will be housed in the future in the Museum which will be built on the megalithic area of Saint-Martin-de-Corléans. The Romans the Museum has a variety of Roman remains. There are funerary objects, glassware (plates, glasses ...), parts of statues, items from the theatre, cutlery and common games. The model of Augusta Prætoria in the Museum there is also a model of the Roman city of Augusta Prætoria Salassorumricostruita based on the ruins of the Roman buildings throughout Italy.

  • I could describe it with two words: innovative, human. It is not only about exposure but also to view, to observe and absorb, reflect, ponder, soaking up the introspection. If men throughout history have left marks, this museum keeps them alive and make your mark.

  • This museum manages to make a fun dive into history. Very nice idea of the drawers containing a lot of information about how people lived in ancient times (from prehistoric to Roman times).
