  • I am not a fan of archaeological museums but it is concise even if it covers a large small, very clear, well presented. The stones engraved, it seems not much, but they are impressive, they have something special...

  • Very nice Museum, modern and well organized. I was amazed by the menhirs statues, which are very well highlighted. The museum itself is partly in a medieval building with a beautiful courtyard. The 11-euro entrance allows you to see the Soulages Museum and a 3rd Museum in Rodez.
