“Small museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2011

Interesting enough if you like Roman artifacts. Worth a stop only if you're in the area of Vieux Port. Basically it's a single room surrounding the remnants of the Roman docks, now a couple blocks from the current Vieux Port (Tres Vieux Port if you will). I admit having difficulty picturing what is described as docks, though there were some urns. Old wooden boat too. Some displays on the walls surrounding the docks in French. No English material available. Staff was nice enough - since I didn't have enough coins to pay the admission fee, rather than accepting a larger paper money denomination they just let me in at a discount which they described as "un cadeau" (gift).
