The open-air museum is the major attraction in Petronell-Carnuntum itself and lies on the site of the old civilian town. It includes ruins of the public baths and a reconstructed temple of Diana. Hunky young actors lead tours in kitsch tunics and togas, and you can buy replicas of Roman sandals and clothing here for your next toga party. The museum is enclosed and very touristy, but nevertheless interesting and good fun; descriptions everywhere are in linguam anglicus .
