We had a rushed visit. Didn't have time to go around the interior of the museum. Spent all the time outside. The audio guide brought the place alive. After what seemed a very short couple of hours the grounds were closed and we had to leave. However, the whole family enjoyed the visit and if we re-visit Vienne we will... More

Innovative architectural space which recreates the atmosphere of the roman town of 2000 years ago. We were fortunate to arrive on a day when admission was free, but we would have happily paid the normal admission cost. We were well informed and as non-French speakers we found the audio guides very helpful. We had a moment of anxiety when we... More

This unique museum gives a beautiful insight in the ancient roman life of Vienne. It combines local archaeological findings with beautiful models and the outside garden with the excavations. Inside is a beautiful exhibition with lots of artifacts, models and floor mosaics. The outside garden contains remains of an ancient roman city. It wasn't difficult to empathize walking through the... More

This museum built on its archaeological site is really well designed. All the exhibitions are arranged according to its geographical location and direction. The ticket 4€ for adult, 2.50€ for student including the multi-language audio guide is very affordable. All the information, presentations, models are very educational. Well worthwhile to spend a half day here.

The visit allowed us to discover even more than we had learnt on our last visit to the town in 2013 - there is a fascinating history that goes back more than 2000 years which is amply displayed in this centre - it would have been more pleasant if there had not been continuous light rain; we will definitely visit...

A modern museum that mixes a very good collection of local Roman finds with full scale reproduction items and helpful models. Very well laid out with a mixture of inside and outside exhibits. Bonus is that the museum is free on Thursdays

I especially liked the museum, which is located on the archaeological site. It displays findings from the site and nearby sites to explain you the Roman history of the city of Vienne. This is done in a didactical and original way, not only providing insight in the Roman society, but also providing insight in the archaeological research and the uncertainties... More

While staying with family in Lyon at Easter, we fancied a day out in the pleasant sunshine, and went to the Musee Gallo Romain at St Romain en Gal, Vienne. We were very pleasantly surprised by the extent of the site and what there was to see, compared with many archaeological attractions we have visited in the past. It was... More
