Although not very large in terms of what has been excavated the site as a whole is significant as a Roman centre. The exhibits are in French but a translation sheet is given. The 'reconstructed' baths give a better feeling of size than simple lines in the grass at similar sites. The restored part of the baths clearly show the remains of the heating system.
There is plenty of scope for further 'experimrental archeology' to show other features in the future.
The ariel photos show clear evidence of the full settlement's extent.

I've been to several Roman museums and baths and this isn't up there with the best, however the visitor centre is good with interesting models and the area is lovely. Honestly, the drive to it through the Normandy countryside and small towns was the best bit for me.

Whilst the site itself is quite small it benefits from a good visitors center and friendly, helpful staff. The site itself contains baths, temple, theater and forum. Worth a visit if your passing. Free entry was an unexpected bonus.
