Long Description:
[FR] Le Musée archéologique de Pons est un petit musée lapidaire qui conserve des collections issues des fouilles archéologiques effectuées dans la commune, dont les divers objets datent des périodes de la protohistoire et de l'Antiquité allant de la République romaine à l'époque gallo-romaine du Haut Empire romain.

Géré par une association historique et archéologique de la ville, ce musée qui recèle de remarquables objets historiques demeure fort mal connu du public.
