ATTENTION : All of the following information has been provided by the museum. For the moment, they are unable to publish their events calendar online. We therefore suggest that you contact the museum directly for further information.

The Amphoralis Museum overlooks the archaeological excavations of a Gallo-Roman potters’ workshop that was active from the 1st century BC to the end of the 3rd century.

The visitor discovers the daily life and activity of these potters who lived on the spot and mass-produced wine amphorae named « Type 4 Gaulish amphorae » but also various building materials (bricks, tiles), as well as everyday crockery.

In the museum grounds, an outdoor trail leads to reconstructions of ovens and a Gallo-Roman dwelling, built identically to the remains found there. Behind the dwelling, the potters’ garden presents more than 180 species listed by the Latin agronomists. Finally, a walk through the arboretum allows visitors to discover the types of wood used for cooking at the time and to understand the regeneration of a forest.

Amphoralis is a unique site museum in Europe, between heritage and a preserved natural environment. It constitutes a centre for archaeological experimentation as well as a place of discovery and entertainment for the public.

Amphoralis is a member of the Narbo Via public establishment for cultural cooperation, which also includes the Narbo Via museum, at the eastern entrance to Narbonne; and the underground galleries of the Horreum, in the heart of the city.
