The Archeological Museum in Arles, is a wonderful place for families to learn about the ancient Roman city. While roaming around in the town, you will see the ruins of the amphitheater and the colosseum. In the museum you'll see models showing how they looked and operated 2000 years ago. The Romans invented a floating bridge that spanned the Rhone river, a shade that could be pulled out over spectators at events in the colosseum, and many other inventions that made daily life easier and more comfortable. The newest and grandest addition to the museum is an actual Roman barge that sank in 53AD complete with all its cargo.
