Fodor's Review

Roman daily life is vividly depicted in this carefully rebuilt home. Everything, from the thermal baths to the ancient board games in the sitting rooms has been completely re-created. The museum also exhibits the largest trove of Roman silver known to exist, which was unearthed in 1962. The objects, dating mostly from the 4th century, are believed to have been buried by the Romans in 350 to protect them from the ravages of the Alemanni, the German tribes who drove the Romans out of Switzerland. English, French, and German brochures are available.
