First of all you have the building and grounds. Outstanding condition of both. Then you have the vast collection of items and the excellent method in which they are displayed. If you are an English only speaker then the written word is very limited. Once...More

Nice archeological museum, situated in the outskirts of Paris, but easily accessible with RER A. The museum is in a great historic setting, the building being a former royal palace. There are extensive information panels (though most in French only) and exhibits from prehistory to...More
