This museum was built on top of Roman ruins (which you can see), it takes you on a trip from the Galo-Roman times to modern times, through the early, middle and late Middle Ages.
The Museum building are often as interesting as the collections.

Very big museum, you will need several hours if you want to read and study everything in detail. Bad points are: everything is exclusively in French, so if you don't know the language that's pretty bad... There are no audio guides in other languages. (in fact, there are no audio guides at all) The museum seems to be expanding all the time with new archeological finds, which makes it look a bit disorganized at times. Overall I found the collection quite impressive.

It's detailed, involves a lot of walking/stairs climbing, all in French, but very interesting to the history buff

Great museum that truly is a maze. I'm not a big fan of medieval museums unless they have at least one section with weapons, and this museum doesn't disappoint. I only gave it four stars because all the placards were in French (many European museums have native languages and English). Definitely recommend visiting here if you have the time or extra day.

This is a very fine museum, especially of archaeology & the early medieval period BUT a great deal of it is underground. Once down, there 'sens de la visite' twists & turns, you climb some stairs, then you go back down again. It will seem a long time until you see day light again & even then you go down again, up again ............ it is very confusing even with the map provided. Even our daughter who visited separately felt overwhelmed.
My husband who is diabetic began to feel quite ill & I had to ask an attendant for the quickest way out for him. As a result, I missed a bit which was a shame.
I slipped back into the Beaux Arts section after he was somewhat recovered but this was less interesting to me & I felt I could have missed it.
