One of the largest ports of the ancient Mediterranean — and just a few rooms with finds and exhibits, attached to the ruins of the Roman baths. However, to look at and there is something.

Several years of excavations have revealed many interesting exhibits for which it decided to organize the Museum.

The first time the entire collection was located on the ground floor located next to the Matisse Museum. Then, realizing that contemporary art and associated creation of antiquity, the authorities moved the Museum closer to the excavation site of Cemenelum — right between the amphitheatre and the baths. The Museum periodically updated with new finds right from the excavation site.
