On the edges of the Vienne, Civaux has a remarkable set of remains from the Roman period and the beginning of Christianity.
Located in the heart of the village, the Archaeological Museum traces the rich past of Civaux, from prehistory to the end of the Middle Ages: an essential place to unravel the mysteries of the necropolis with a thousand sarcophagi and understand the early Christian and Merovingian site of Civaux.
Many archaeological objects and documents illustrate the millennial history of Civaux.
In a friendly setting, the museum invites young and old to immerse themselves in this heritage, through events, exhibitions, guided tours, game booklets, children's workshops, the treasure hunt "The Six Calves of gold" and the escape game "the fibula shooting"..
Audioguides (F, GB and SP) are available at the museum so you can explore all the sites at your own pace.
