History puts in an appearance with the Lyon Tablet, discovered in 1528, which reproduces in bronze the speech that Emperor Claudius, born in Lyon, gave to support Gallic participation in the Senate in Rome in the year 48.
Among the beliefs and cults, visitors will discover an enigmatic Gallic calendar, one of the longest documents in the Celtic language currently existing.
The collection of inscriptions, statue bases and epitaphs – one of the largest in France – is an exceptional source for understanding the inhabitant and their activities.
The decoration of homes is evoked by several mosaic floors, such as the so-called "Swastika Mosaic", which visitors are able to walk on.
