Musée Gallo-Romain de Lyon-Fourvière

Recommended
Designed by architect Bernard Zehrhuss, this museum backs onto a hill and appears to be partly buried in it. It showcases Gallo-Roman collections uncovered at Lugdunum. Urban development, municipal administration, the army, religion, theatre and circus games, domestic life and early Christianity in Gaul are all covered in this museum, which also displays the remarkable Claudian tablet (inscribed with Claudius' speech in favour of the Gauls) and a bronze-engraved Gallic calendar.
