Welcome to Nyon's Roman Museum

The doors of the Roman Museum open into the ancient town of Nyon/Noviodunum, the urban centre of the Colonia Iulia Equestris. You will discover the typical day-to-day existence of a Roman colony, ranging from care of one’s appearance to political life. The Museum also proposes activities for children and guided tours.
