Museum gallo-roman


This museum is devoted to archaeological collections, mostly from local excavations, referring to the different stages of the evolution of the town.

Inside view

Archaeology, coins and fine art


The permanent exhibition offers a tour for remembering the living environment, funerary practices from the past to contemporary times.


 
Among the displayed collections, it is important to note an exceptional set from a mausoleum, of the late 1st - early 2nd century, built by a rich Gallo-Roman family who lived in Sisteron during the High Empire.

 

The specificity of the site, a crossroads conducible to trade relations, is highlighted by the different moneys discovered that help recreating the exchanges between local peoples and Marseille inhabitants during the second century BC.  


 
A rich iconography of the city with drawings, etchings and watercolors show the evolution of Sisteron.


 
Rarities are also displayed: beautiful pottery of the sixteenth century, medieval capitals with carved characters.


 
Finally, the visit would not be complete without mentioning Paul Arene, a few of whose personal belongings and writings are preserved.

 

 Museum classified "Museum of France Label".
