Aqua, a Roman invention

From Friday 3rd November 2017 to Sunday 6th May 2018, at the Gallo-Roman Museum 

Nestled in the hillside opposite the ancient site of Fourvière, the Musée Gallo-Romain is one of the more interesting museums to visit as a family because of the various activities it puts on.

A gentle slope connects areas that focus on the main aspects of the lives of the Gallo-Romans: daily life, the army, the gods, circus games, beliefs, death and so on.

The main highlight of this season is an exhibition on the Romans' relationship with water.

Water is vital to human life and has long been at the heart of the concerns of the Mediterranean people for obvious reasons: to quench their thirst, irrigate their crops, and for cooling off or washing. The Romans were proficient builders and town planners, and did a great job of harnessing, collecting, channelling and preserving water.

To do so they dug wells, built tanks and constructed aqueducts to convey the water from its source to the heart of their cities, and ensure that it also remained pure. The Romans were capable of addressing the technical challenge of supplying sufficient quantities of drinking water to entire cities.

In Lugdunum, water was carried uphill by 4 huge aqueducts, which liberally supplied fountains, homes and thermae. And any wastewater was drained away by sewers.

The exhibition includes models, archaeological artefacts, photos and videos that retrace the historical evolution of water and its day-to-day omnipresence in Lugdunum, when compared to our present use of this precious commodity.

Both instructive and impressive!

Access to the museum and its exhibitions is included in the Lyon City Card.
Entrance to the museum is free on the 1st Sunday of every month.

Audio guides in French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Japanese are available free of charge for adults, and in French and English for children.
