You are here: EN » COLLECTION AND RESEARCH » Collection online 


The Gallo-Roman Museum collection contains tens of thousands of pieces, many of which we are increasingly exhibiting online, on various websites and platforms. Yours to explore!


Exploratorium is intended to inspire anyone to develop an interest in the distant past/ancient times and prehistory. Each object is presented with a clear explanation including details about how, why, when and by whom it was used. Handy maps show where the piece was made and found. You can zoom in on the photos, to view the smallest detail. The website is intended to be accesible for all audiences.
