Could spend 30 minutes or two hours. Like the contrast of the baroque architecture and the much older collection. Mostly from the local region, which is fascinating. Ok for 12 years and up.

and I say this as an archaeologist....I haven't been in a place so truly boring in many years. The fabulous past of the city is let down big time by basically being warehoused in an old church. Some amazing pieces let down with minimal /...More

My understanding is that the exhibits are primarily an overflow of the larger and/or lesser antiquaries from the Musee Calvert - exhibits are housed in a deconsecrated 17C church and the collection appears more of a display, rather than a museum (all the info is...More

This redundant chapel contains quite an interesting collection of archaeological artefacts, mostly Greek and Roman sculptures, which are displayed within the nave of the chapel. Ok if you are interested in this type of history.

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

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...More

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.
