  • I don’t get it why France has forgotten that there is something outside their borders. This museum like all I’ve visited in France, have only signs in French. If that isn’t a problem for you, then...

  • Great museum, contains history throughout time. It is free and English friendly (there is no English explanation but you can ask for audio guide). Excellent audio guide in English for free (you need to leave your ID card).
  • Free museum. History of the city within. Roman to medieval ruins in the basement, which is not for the cluster phobic prone because the space is dark and low. Upstairs is bright and spacious with a great rhythm of written informational posters and actual treasures from the past. We took our time so 2 hours, but could be done faster. Everything is in French so maybe bring a dictionary.
