This museum has a great collection of artifacts from the Roman Empire, but it badly needs revamping to 'bring it to life' for the average visitor. If you already have a deep interest in that era of history you will love it, but if not...More

Incredible mosaics dotted throughout and really interesting decorative pieces in the cabinets.
