This museum had many exhibits (although we had a hard time understanding some of the information because there was little in English) which presented the different cultures from about 30,000BC to 10,000BC. It's fascinating to see what man did back in this time.

In the Rough Guide it said this museum had a good collection of Roman mosaics, which is why we paid our admission. We went through the entire museum, and none to be found. There is a fine collection of neolithic artifacts, which we enjoyed, but...More

Particularly strong on prehistory, with reconstructions and artefacts. Films showing the making of flint tools and examples - some very fine - of the tools themselves. If this era interests you, allow enough time to browse slowly.

In the parts to the right you step back into the belle-epoque with green and blue walls that are chuck full of paintings, supposedly lit by the (by now somewhat smudgy) skylights. But give the paintings a chance and you will find some pretty impressive...More

And that about sums it up really, a load of badly signed artefacts with occasional bits of prehistoric relics that almost make it worthwhile. Not even air conditioned and no cafe!!

There are plenty of exhibits but very much the same, it needs a face lift. There are museums and there are museums, this falls into the 'must I go' bracket. Not expensive and maybe that's the reason.
