An hour well invested.

Some interesting artifacts from french history are on show here and it's been adapted so that I could get to almost everything in my powered wheelchair.

This is a nice museum containing archeology collections found on the territory of today's Reims. The collections range from prehistoric times, gallic, gallo-roman, medieval times all the way until the XIXth century. The cloister and the chapter house evoke the medieval architectural splendor of the former royal abbey of Saint Remi.

If you like all things Medieval, this is a lovely place to visit. It also has Roman and pre-historic exhibits but I think it shines because of the various artefacts from the town's medieval.history. Wonderful.statues and I particularily liked the Musician savey from the House of the Musicians. The Hall of Tapestries was impressive, and I thought the building was... More

Contains Gallo- Roman artifacts. Some ancient objects that would be hard to find at any other museums. Artifacts of the area that are well presented. Definitely worth a short side trip (1 hour or so to go through) if visiting the Basilica next door or coming from a nearby Champagne cave tour. We enjoyed this museum! Note: it has limited... More

A very good regional museum. Really worth 1 star in the Michelin Green Guide rather than the 2 stars. Focused on the region with significant ancient archeological collections, a minor Roman collection, and other periods. The military history collection was excellent. An interesting side note was the foyer exhibition on WW 2 French flying aces including Free French Air Force... More

This museum is next to the Basilique Saint-Remi and is probably worth an hour of your time whilst visiting the basilica, but probably not for it's own sake would I make the walk from the centre of Reims. The museum contains some quite interesting exhibits about local history, but the explanation is almost entirely in French only, and so my... More

This is a little away from the centre, but nicely laid out in cool rooms. The illustrated sarcophagus is amazing!

This place is amazing! If you ever get the chance to drive outside of Paris, please see this place. The stained glass is wonderful!

The place is just next to the Basilic of Saint Remi. The museum is very extensive, so if you like to see everything in details, you will probably take a lot of time to visit that place. Moreover, the museum is quite calm and agradable. When I was in the museum, I felt the same sense of peace that I... More
