“Small collection, improvised structure”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This museum stays right on the way from the bus stop at Bois de Vaux in the direction down to the roman ruins by the lake. Better just head straight to the ruins, for the museum is quite small and unattractive for its price. They have a limited stock of materials in display with nothing impressive, and most of the museum structure seems to be being used for something else, with areas under construction and offices. It is actually rather easy to find yourself going into an office while expecting to find something else to see in the museum. The outside "roman garden" is just as disappointing.

“Not convinced about these ruins!”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Went for a walk around the ruins, have been to a few sites with roman archaeological remains before and this one was just a bit too ordered and samey, not really convinced that the remains haven't been interfered with in modern times and some concrete and pebbles added for better effect!

“Average roman museum”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

Not a real special one, just a fine roman museum for people that are not used to it. One visit it's worth (and enough).

“Basic”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Really crowded when I went there, it was the special museum day in Lausanne. Small museum, not very amazing. Temporary expo, terrible for me. It was an indoor labyrinth with kids screaming and running everywhere and no space to breath. Beware claustrophobics!
