Built around the ruins of a first-century Roman home, Vesunna preserves and protects this piece of history, while educating visitors about era. The home and several artifacts from daily life were discovered in 1959. The museum--a glass and steel structure with an umbrella-like roof--opened in 2003. From raised catwalks, you can see models and descriptions of what the house looked like in its heyday. You also can learn about the Roman city that once existed here.

  • In perigulate, after strolling through the pedestrian streets and surrounding parks, we decide to visit this VESUNNA site. Warm and efficient welcome With all the appropriate advice, cloakrooms with token set handy, acceptable toilet for a museum. Very pleasant covered areas with a good layout, the descriptions are well adapted and a good variety of objects and remains are pleasant to observe. In the end a very reasonable price of 6 euros for a beautiful moment of history.

  • During our weekend in Périgueux we decided to go to Vesunna. We are not history buffs, nor are we specialists in antiquity. We enjoyed the visit, free. The site is exceptional in its size, its quality and this modern glass building that protects it, like a jewel in its case. The exhibition on petrocores taught us a lot.
