Modern, nice and well-organised museum. The glass walls makes it bright and the displays airy and easy to understand. Precious artefacts on display. Pristine mosaics, well preserved or restored sarcophagus, amphoras, etc. and of course the main reason of my visit: the marble bust of Julius Caesar (still debating on this one) found in the Rhone river. I was happily surprised.
