Fodor's Review

This space keeps a dozen impressive steles (ancient stone slabs) on permanent display, but otherwise houses temporary exhibits focusing on archeological finds. Its collection of excavated pieces, including fine Roman works found in Valais, has been moved to the Musée Cantonal d'Histoire. The narrow, cobbled Rue des Châteaux, which leads up to Sion's twin fortifications, passes graceful old patrician houses.
