This old church just behind Les Halles now houses more of the roman ruins of Narbonne. It's kind of a mess and there was no one around to ask any questions. Needles to say it was only a 15 minute visit.

This very large collection or pieces of Roman ruins could be so much more. The building is dusty and the signage dated.

It was interesting to wander around the old church and look at all of the recovered and found stones from ancient sites. The lack of information allowed the mind to fill in the gaps and imagine the story behind the stones.

The museum displays a massive number of Roman tombstones and a few medieval sarcophagi. The layout of the materials exhibited is rather unusual and not at all as one would expect. There are info-tags. However, this helped creating a fascinating atmosphere, which was enhanced by...More

It might not be the most modern, well organized museum, but you get to touch and feel them and wonder what these ancient Romans were like. Unbelievable amount of headstones, coffins and history of the 1st century BC!!

A very rich collection. The second behind that of Rome. We remind that Narbone has been the capital of the Roman province which covers the South of France. Statues, tombstone, stones with relieves abd inscriptions. More of 2000 pieces at your disposal

In this museum the time appears to have stopped centuries ago, it is a good example of a typical museum of the Romanticism. At the same time you can enjoy with the sight of the naked church. The collection consists of hundreds of Roman stones...More

Maybe "Worth a Visit" doesn't sound enticing, but I hesitate because it's not at all what I expected or what I've ever seen before. It's in a very ild, solid church that is absolutely empty but for these large, chiselled stones. But, I really enjoyed...More

This museum is currently in temporary premises in a disused church and at present comprises only stacks of Roman headstones neatly arranged in rows. It is nonetheless fascinating. It is shortly to be relocated to new premises with 'interpretation'.
