To be fair, this is a type of museum that is probably of interest only to latinists or classicists. I went because I have learned some latin and have general interest in roman ruins. And even though all captions were in French, I could observe...More

To be honest, this museum is out of the way and too small to be of interest to most tourists. It's a neat little place but more useful to local families and schools. If you happen to be nearby I wouldn't call it a waste...More

This museum stays right on the way from the bus stop at Bois de Vaux in the direction down to the roman ruins by the lake. Better just head straight to the ruins, for the museum is quite small and unattractive for its price. They...More

Not a real special one, just a fine roman museum for people that are not used to it. One visit it's worth (and enough).

Really crowded when I went there, it was the special museum day in Lausanne. Small museum, not very amazing. Temporary expo, terrible for me. It was an indoor labyrinth with kids screaming and running everywhere and no space to breath. Beware claustrophobics!

A Roman presence in Lausanne may come as a surprise, but it was an important location during the Roman empire. Vidy was an important port, as the museum relates, and trading centre on a major route North. I got more of a feeling for how...More
