This is a fantastic newly constructed museum positioned on the plain where the Gauls were defeated by the Romans.
We started the morning at the reconstruction of the Roman fort by seeing 4 men display Roman weapons and combat skills - great stuff. The actors spoke French, but we could see what they were talking about. We then went through the museum using the free English audio guide. The whole thing is really well done.
The cafe had good local food at a very reasonable price (€6.50 for kids menu (drink, meal and dessert) and €8.50 for adults (drink and meal) - which seemed like a bargain, having just come from Switzerland). The museum entry fee is also good value.
There was a display of Gaul weapons and skills in the afternoon, but we were too tired. The staff were enthusiastic and helpful. The one thing I thought could have been better was the film, but that is because I have been spoilt by watching HBO's big budget series.
Highly recommended by my three boys (6,8 & 10).
