History & Archaeology Museum

This well-worth-visiting museum is presented on two levels, with the upper level given over to extensive Roman findings and the lower level displaying even more fascinating artefacts of pre-Roman civilisations going back some 6000 years. The museum is situated on the site of the ancient fortress of Aegyssus, around 1km east of the centre.
