Interesting, good presentation

Plenty of parking, excellant access for the handicapped, something new seems to be discovered regularly so it is not a 'stuffy' museum

Was a wet day in d'Agde when we decided to pay a visit to the museum. €5 entry each but would definitely advise getting an audio guide at €2 as there is very little in the way of English translation and without it you'll miss so much of the fascinating history. I wasn't really sure that a museum of artefacts... More

Agde is a shortened form of the Greek Agathe Tyche, meaning good fortune, so named several thousand years ago. Most finds are accidental, Agde is no exception as the Greek artifacts were fished out of the river where they were thrown to avoid capture. What is not accidental is the charming museum housing the artifacts. Clever lighting and visitor-friendly exhibits... More

Easy parking, helpful staff. English audio guide available. Amazing amounts of items recently found off the coast. Museum was bigger than I had been expecting.

A really interesting museum about local archeological finds from the sea. Towards the end of the exhibition there are some amazing Bronze statues- one of Alexander the Great and one of Cleopatra's child which is gorgeous. Some amazing artifacts and an excellent (although a little verbose) audio commentary. Small entrance fee well worth it.

This museum is bright and stimulating, the wealth of history of the ancient town of Agde rescued for me local waters is breathtaking in variety and information. Ancient Greek and Roman artifacts, bring over 2000 years of history to life. A top quality museum in a beautiful setting

Cap D'Agde is a new town so you would not expect to find a museum bursting with Roman and Greek artifacts. BUT - for the last 40 years a group of local divers have been searching the coast line and the Herault River. In the sand they have found some stunning pieces. Ephebe - who the musee is named after... More
