“Well presented, a most enjoyable experience”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

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

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

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 might even be Alexander the Great - never mind the detail - this is a stunning near life sized bronze displayed with repect in an almost completely black room - wonderfully lit and you can also sit in a small tiered area to sit quietly and marvel. Two bronzes of young boys - one who might have been the son of Cleopatra and Mark Anthony are also wonderful. Many many other fine artifacts - give it a try and in the heat you might be grateful for the airconditioning!
