Themed tours


Age: 6-8 years old. Duration: 1 hr
A fun visit designed for young people like a story that is told. It is based on models, images and mime. It ends with a session of Roman games.


Age: 8-12 years old. Duration: 2 hrs.
Educational activity (2 x 1 hr in half-groups)

Discover the habits of our ancestors at Colonia Iulia Equestris. One half of the group will visit the museum with their teacher, armed with a discovery booklet on the permanent exhibition and on a theme of their choice (“Roman ceramics”, “What did the Romans eat?” and “Stone carving”), while the other half will handle and touch real Roman objects presented by a guide.


Age: 8-18 years old. Duration: 1.5 hrs
A walk through the streets of Nyon in the footsteps of the ancient remains, followed by a visit of the museum. Little by little, the Roman face of Nyon is revealed: basilica, forum, covered market, thermal baths, amphitheatre… As the capital of Colonia Iulia Equestris, the remains of Noviodunum reveal that the colony was modelled on the city of Rome.


Age: 6-18 years old. Duration: 1 hr or 1.5 hrs
A visit to the museum, either in general or on a theme related to the subjects covered in class.
For example:

  • From birth to death: the cycle of life in Antiquity.
  • From garden to plate: a horticultural and culinary journey through Antiquity.
  • The vine and the wine: discovering one of the great pleasures of the Romans through the objects in the exhibition.
  • Economy and finance: the foundations of the complex system of the economy in Roman times where taxes, currencies and general administration seem strangely modern.
