“Archeological items of the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

This is another small museum in Avignon, and certainly worthwhile to spend an hour examining the Roman and ancient past of the City. There are a few, surprising notable items there, including Greek vases, and Roman works. The greatest amount of the items, however, are in average or worse condition, and nothing great. For only two Euros per admission, well worth the hunt for something that tells you more about the past.

“Hidden Treasure in Avignon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Inside a beautiful historic building in the Ancient City of Avignon is a hidden treasure. This building is full of Greek and Roman Antiquities. This was quite a find and well worth the few Euros for admission.

“Well worth the 3 euros”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Brilliant- it looks small on the outside, but the exhibits are superb. Recommend you do not miss this. There are some excellent Greek and Roman statues and pottery as well as post-Roman sculptures and epigraphy.

“A trip to Avignon for the history buff must include Musee Lapidaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

While it's not the Louvre, this collection set in a historic building has some interesting artifacts from the Roman era that are worth viewing, and at an inexpensive (I think 2 euros?) fee.

You do not need any more than 30-45 minutes to review the collection.
