The museum is beautifully curated, with many interesting exhibits. The staff was particularly helpful in guiding us to the specific mosaic we wanted to see, eventually directing us to their archive down the road.

We spent a very pleasant afternoon in Avenches - taking the train to and from Murten. The main part is near the museum, but it is also worthwhile to walk a bit farther into the countryside to see the theater, parts of which are still...More
