Long Description:
The museum is one reason to block the entire day for a visit to the Pont du Gard. The museum includes a film and there is a selection of gift shops and food available.
There are two car parks with surveillance at your disposal, open from 6:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. (5 € per day). There are 800 places on the left bank and 600 places on the right bank.

A full range of museum displays has been used to help visitors explore and understand this monument: models, full scale replicas, maps, multi-screen images, video and sound archives and all with a common denominator: water.

Three themes over 2500 m2

A sort of modern day Roman road leads through a host of multimedia screens (in 4 languages) which provide information and allow visitors to explore at their own pace and also test their knowledge.
