A quaint museum with interesting artifacts for sure. Nice wasn't really billed as a top spot to look at Roman Ruins, but we found the Ruins of Roman Baths accessible through this museum to be very worthwhile.

We enjoyed a quiet walk around the museum and the grounds. Very interesting layout and boards. Many of which are in both English and French. There are support materials for those that are not bilingual for the others.
