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...

This is a fantastic museum for the whole family well worth a visit. Rich history of the Roman city life is well documented and presented in an ideal way. Highly recommended

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

I have travelled in and around this part of France for many years, but had not visited the gallo-romaine museum and site at St Romain-en-Gal until November this year, 2008. This can be explained by the fact that this wonderful site does not appear to be well publicized The museum is one of the best of its kind that I... More

This site just across the river from Vienne France gives one an excellent experience as to what a Roman City looked like. Inside the Museum there are artifacts that have been found on the site. The descriptions are available in all languges and let you move along at your own pace. Once outside on the actual "dig" you get to... More

Having friends in Vienne, I have visited there many times. The city itself is worth a visit, charming and old style. Wonderful Roman ruins throughout the town and other sites that make a day delightful. Across the river is my favorite, the site of an old Roman city from when France was still Gaul. Though the buildings are of course... More
