Overview

The Regional Archaeological Museum (MAR) is housed in a prestigious historical building built on the foundations of the Roman tower that flanked the northern gate of the city. At first Vaudan Hall, then the seat of the Monastery of the Visitation, founded in 1633, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, after the Napoleonic suppression of the convent, it became the seat of the barracks. The set-up of the Museum, documented by a rich collection of archaeological finds, furnishings and personal artifacts, the result of the excavations conducted for decades on behalf of the Autonomous Region of Aosta Valley, is divided into a chronological path from the ancient phase of the Mesolithic (7000 - 6000 BC) until the seventh century AD. It covers various topics related to religion, daily life and public life.

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!

As far as small museums go, this one is the best ever encountered. If you take the time to appreciate what has been done here, you'll be very happy, as this has been well thought out in every detail. Obviously highly informative and quite entertaining....More

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.

It is small but has some very nice objects. Not much English, but some. Particularly good for children as it has a few interactive objects, remember to open the drawers
