The collections of this museum are exceptional, and rather well highlighted, but also very well organized, by themes. A visit not to be missed, and free for students!
Nice simple museum which was not crowded so can take your time to visit. Good way to get a historical overview of this specific city and region.
An absolutely superb museum, we were fascinated by the range and type of exhibits, which are well laid out and with clear information. The Roman boat, recovered from the mud of the river Rhone nearby was a particular favourite. There are also well-reconstructed mosaics and a huge number of sarcophagi The building is modern and spacious, so even though we were on a day when entry was free we did not feel crowded. Highly recommended to anyone who is even remotely interested in the times around the Roman period in Provence.
