At the MuséoParc Alésia, relive history in style!

A place of history and memory known to all, the site of Alesia is part of the national heritage since the famous battle between Caesar and Vercingetorix.

The interpretation centre offers a dynamic discovery of the siege of Alesia. Ancient objects and facsimiles, diorama, films, models, multimedia terminals and reproductions of war machines give you the keys to understanding the history of the site. The MuseoPark's programme is friendly and interactive: themed meetings, educational workshops, historical demonstrations, audio guides with a choice of a "children's" or "adult" visit with games, a games library for children aged 3 to 8... So you can plunge into the heart of the battles and be surprised by the impressive reconstruction of the Roman fortification lines. A life-size immersion!

Alesia is also...
An emblematic statue
To commemorate the end and success of the research undertaken at Alesia, Napoleon III commissioned the sculptor Aimé Millet to build a colossal statue of Vercingetorix. This 6.60 metre high work in copper sheet metal was erected in 1865. Its 7-metre stone base was designed by the architect Viollet-le-Duc.

And a Gallo-Roman site that has been open for over 100 years!
After the defeat of Vercingetorix, the oppidum continued to be occupied. A prosperous Gallo-Roman town developed, thanks in particular to the activity of craftsmen specialising in bronze work. It was abandoned in the 5th century. The population can be estimated at a few thousand people. Of this ancient city, there are only remains that have been heavily excavated. They correspond to the foundations and buried structures of the monuments and dwellings built during several centuries.
