  • Great museum with enthusiastic friendly staff. There was a free tour which was excellent although only in French. I wandered about outside alyhough from other reviews I understand that is not allowed. Oops. The Etruscans Gauls Greeks and Romans all inhabited the town so something for everyone. Entry was free anfd I was presented with a book. The recreation of a Gaul village was good together with examples of brick making. Nice bars an restaurants nearby together with tram stop for easy access. I cycled the bike path from Montpellier.
  • Lovely little museum - my only complaint was that you couldn’t wander about the excavated grounds without being in a prebooked group - which is a shame as it looked beautiful & fascinating from the window.
