New Roman Museum in Nimes, France

With more than 5,000 pieces on display, the Musee de la Romanite opened on June 2, 2018, across the street from the Arenes de Nimes, the ancient Roman coliseum located in that city.

Among the displays is a large mosaic, unearthed during the museum's construction, depicting the Theban king Pentheus being murdered by his mother.

Open daily at 10 a.m. Closing varies from 6 to 8 p.m., depending on the season. Entrance is € 8 (about $9).
