The Archaeological Museum - ARLON
Archaeology Museum: the largest collection of Gallo-Roman sculpture in Belgium.
The Gallo-Roman Lapidary Gallery is the largest of its kind in Belgium, with the best-quality artefacts. It contains more than 425 sculptures from funerary monuments and civic buildings. The exhibits include around sixty large fragments sculpted on several sides, plus shards of pottery and other discoveries which paint a picture of daily life during the Gallo-Roman era. The museum’s fascinating Frankish gallery displays the contents of the tombs of Merovingian dignitaries (contemporaries of King Clovis) found in Arlon, including gold jewellery, Damascus steel swords, vases and coffins.
