This museum is an excellent antiquities museum worth a special visit. The focus of the museum is display and explication of the Roman ruins (forum,walls, entrance gates, some domicile artifacts). What is remarkable about this museum is the variety of displays (some diagrams, some film,...More

An interesting and poetical journey through Roman archeology, I think. Not sure because most of the signage and information was in Italian and French, with only an occasional and apparently random sign offering English and, somewhat quixotically, 2 or 3 in Braille. The basement featured...More

The small archaeological museum had a few interesting Roman artefacts but does not loom large in my memory.

We almost missed this one. Be sure you don't, if you have any interest at all in local archeology and history. The subterranean exhibit is quite extensive and still being excavated. Other interests include art of the area, personal items, sculptures, and much more. It's...More

It's a small museum that can take about 45-60min to visit. It start before the Romans (the most well known previous inhabitants of Aosta), and goes until the Roman Empire. There's a lot of artifacts and reconstructions. On the lower floor there's a big area...More

We went to see the special Celts exhibit, which was well presented, but a bit unassuming - just like the rest of this Museum. But do go, as it's very good - and open most of most days, unlike many in Italy!

It's free entry. The museum is small but there was plenty to keep our daughter and the grown ups amused and interested, specially with the "secret" drawers containing objects and explanations. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Interesting Musee if you are around Aosta. I didn't know thar Aosta had such a old dated history. That was fascinating to study closer.
