This museum has artifacts from the Roman period-there's only French descriptions but it only takes 30 minutes or even less to take it in

This museum on the main street of Avignon is in a church built in the 1600's. It is a remarkable collection of Roman artifacts dating to the 4th century BC. It is a large collection that is in remarkable condition. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Would have given it 5 stars if the collection was bigger. But what is there is... More

We walked in during the free museum day. This little gem was a fun place to spend an hour. It was a jumble of interesting pieces. As others noted, provenance wasn't always clear, but the pleasant organization and comfortable environment made this visit worthwhile. We weren't sure what to expect, but Musee Lapidaire exceeded our expectations.

Despite the obvious local Roman connection, alot of these objects didn't seem to be related to the area. Mostly funerary items and so rather morbid.

Small museum of ancient Greek and Roman art housed in a beautiful building in the heart of the commercial district of the city. Unfortunately there were only descriptions in French on the exhibits at the moment.

This is a small exhibition of odd archaeology. Many of the exhibits have no provenance - no idea even what country they were found in. Many are grave ornaments, which means you're looking at the proceeds of graverobbing. The captions (French only) just describe the item, not tell you anything about it or its context, which I found frustrating. But,... More

We were expecting to see specimens of semiprecious stone but instead found artifacts from the Roman Settlements in France. Very nice. Would go again. Inexpensive!

As it is right on Republic street your can't miss it. Statues and more plus a lovely church. A good place to pop in for a little culture while shopping.

Set in an old baroque church this Is part of the Calvet museum. The modest entrance fee of two euros is well worth it. The exhibits are mainly Roman and Greek and have some gems amongst them Worth the time

This is another small museum in Avignon, and certainly worthwhile to spend an hour examining the Roman and ancient past of the City. There are a few, surprising notable items there, including Greek vases, and Roman works. The greatest amount of the items, however, are in average or worse condition, and nothing great. For only two Euros per admission, well... More
