Lapidary Museum is located in Notre-Dame-de-Lamourguier Church. First impression is of a randomly placed collection of ancient stones but is really quite unusual place, not your regular museum. It houses around 2000 blocks of carved and sculpted stones coming from a range of public and...More

It was my last activity in Narbonne and I must say I did not like it. I was expecting something different. The Lapidary is inside a church, at the entrance I was met by a boy in his early 20s who did not give me...More

Very welcoming ticket office and a detailed notes handout but very little info once inside. More detail needed on the main pieces rather than having to refer to the notes to see if a particular piece is mentioned.

A chaotic collection of Roman tombstones, sarcophagi and similar stonework. Very little in the way of explanation which was a shame. There was an information sheet that helped. Evidently, the largest collection of its kind outside Rome. It is housed in an old disused church,...More

This old church just behind Les Halles now houses more of the roman ruins of Narbonne. It's kind of a mess and there was no one around to ask any questions. Needles to say it was only a 15 minute visit.

This very large collection or pieces of Roman ruins could be so much more. The building is dusty and the signage dated.

It was interesting to wander around the old church and look at all of the recovered and found stones from ancient sites. The lack of information allowed the mind to fill in the gaps and imagine the story behind the stones.

There was no guide, no specially indicated pieces Basically, just a piled up load of stones I understand that there are a lot of Roman artefacts in Narbonne but they could have highlighted certain interesting pieces instead you just have to aimlessly wander through columns...More

The museum displays a massive number of Roman tombstones and a few medieval sarcophagi. The layout of the materials exhibited is rather unusual and not at all as one would expect. There are info-tags. However, this helped creating a fascinating atmosphere, which was enhanced by...More

It might not be the most modern, well organized museum, but you get to touch and feel them and wonder what these ancient Romans were like. Unbelievable amount of headstones, coffins and history of the 1st century BC!!
