Vieux la Romaine, musée et sites archéologiques

TripAdvisor Read reviews ›


Discover the day-to-day lives of the Gallo-Romans thanks to vestiges unearthed over 3 centuries on the site of the former capital Aregenua, today known as "Vieux-la-Romaine".

Vieux-la-Romaine is an archaeological ensemble comprised of a museum, a Roman garden, a restored Roman villa and an excavation site.

The ideal site to discover the most intimate secrets of archaeology!

Exhibitions in 2016: "PAYS'ÂGES, La Plaine de Caen à travers les âges" (Landscapes, the Caen Plain over the ages).

The Caen Plain is a traditionally crop-growing area... But was that the case when the very first inhabitants and peasants settled there? Why and how did man shape this country landscape over the successive uses made of it? Archaeological research and associated scientific disciplines have enabled us to reproduce former landscapes. Let us discover the history of this territory, together.

With the family

A fun-filled family tour of the museum and you'll know all you ever wanted to know about archaeology. Who knows... there may be some budding archaeologists among you!

A programme of children's workshops is organised throughout the year: feel free to ask for further information!
