Planning a visit to the Gallo-Roman Museum? Your best bet is to book your ticket in advance. That way you are guaranteed a visit to the museum
We display over 2000 objects, including many masterpieces, in a contemporary and atmospheric presentation that reveals their full beauty. Films, models and lifelike figures in synthetic resin also transport you to those bygone times. This also makes the exhibition particularly attractive for children.
One thing is certain: a visit to this exhibition is bound to inspire an enduring passion for the distant past. And you’ll probably see the present with new eyes, too.
We display objects from everyday life: flint tools used by the Neanderthals, earthenware pots from the first agricultural societies, stylish tableware from Roman times…
Many objects illustrate important social changes. For example, bronze swords demonstrate the emergence of an elite in the Iron Age. A unique hoard of gold coins speaks of the conquest of our region by the Roman general Julius Caesar.
Our core collection proves that Roman culture also took root in our region. There are impressive architectural fragments, elegant pieces of jewellery and a wide range of Roman statues of gods and Roman pottery. The wealth of artifacts from tumulus graves also appeals to the imagination.
The exhibition is perfectly suited for a visit with children. There are educational films, models and lifelike figures in synthetic resin. Interactive applications provide a playful way to discover the past.
Be sure to pick up the child-friendly audio guide on arrival. Archaeologist ‘Bob the Digger’ talks enthusiastically about his love for the past. He guides children to the most fascinating objects, introducing them to the world in which our ancestors lived.
Bob also takes them behind the scenes at the museum where fun quiz questions will inspire kids to learn more – like: Who are the specialists he works with? Which pieces were his own finds? Kids are guaranteed a fascinating experience, from start to finish.
