Archaeological Museum of Arlon


Archaeological Museum of Arlon

Discover all about the Gallo-Roman civilization in the Archaeological Museum of Arlon. At the intersection of two important Roman roads a Roman settlement arose which was given the name Oralaunum vicus and which would later develop into the city of Arlon. The museum houses utensils and an extensive collection of tombstones that bear witness to the rich culture of this civilization. This culture was a combination of Gallic and Roman customs and habits.

The museum houses numerous collections of Gallo-Roman civilization. It has one of the most important lapidary galleries in Europe. Sculpted bas-reliefs depict scenes of everyday Gallo-Roman life and offer a broad view of the customs, crafts, agriculture and costume of Romanized Gaul. The reliefs come from funerary monuments and public buildings. Many artifacts have been found thanks to excavations in the old town of Arlon. Frankish cemeteries dating from the 6th and 7th centuries AD have also been uncovered in the city, and their artifacts can also be found in the museum.
