This is a small but perfectly formed museum giving an insight to the period and multiple finds. The audioguide was worth taking and added to the enjoyment- commentary was accessible with options of more detail if wanted.

Impressive museum with lots of different finds from the roman period. We decided not to go for the audio tour but just to look at all the objects on display. Some short documentaries which I think were subtitled

Nicely spaced and well-presented museum, constructed around the remains of a Roman house, dating from the first century, and discovered in 1959. Much information, and many artefacts. Fascinating, and well worth a visit.
