Very well-presented and full of interest, but you need to not worry about the referencing and numbering system - you'll get there. The numbers on the exhibit are often difficult to find and are erratically set out when linking up with the audio guide. Just listen as you go once you find the numbers! We spent time and were very... More

Wonderful museum, has a vast roof span, therefore no obstruction viewing the Roman ruins. Info good.

The museum is great for getting a sense of life for the Gauls in the first and second century. The mosaics in the remains of the original house along with the water and bathing systems were highlights.

This is a modern, well laid out museum which really makes the most of the excavated villa and local artefacts which it displays. Plenty of free parking nearby which is another plus. Not to be missed on a visit to Perigeux!

this museum is a perfect frame for the roman architecture it encloses. Natural lighting sets off all the exhibits.

I found this visit disappointing- having become used to excellent guides and informative audio information I found this visit dry and without inspiration. I think I would have enjoyed it more if we had walked past the exhibit straight to the remains of the villa and looked at and talked about the main event. The vdu 's around the main... More

I am interested in the Roman era and the museum does a very good job of being educational without being boring or going on too long. The villa itself does the talking assisted by exhibits and displays which are just about right

The day was cloudy, we thought lets see what the Romans got up to in France, so decided to visit the museum. Generally I would sum it up by saying it was ok, we spent a good hour looking around. I would say go if you are in the area and you have nothing better to do but don't expect... More

We enjoyed visiting this Roman site. There is a tower outside the museum and inside the museum the a villa footprint is covered with Plexiglas. Again, most descriptions were in French and they did not sell an English Guidebook. We rented an audio tour in English. Bring your camera and comfortable shoes. We really enjoyed seeing the mural fragments and... More
