- The Museum of Roman Culture.
- Inaugurated in 2018, the Musée de la Romanité is opposite the Roman Arenas of Nîmes, a witness to two thousand years of history.
- In the historic heart of the city, this superb contemporary building houses numerous architectural collections of Roman heritage representative of the life of yesteryear. The museum is crossed by the remains of the Roman rampart and it is designed as the gateway to an urban path. Its external appearance represents a mosaic in the form of a Roman toga. It is a building designed and created by Franco-Brazilian architect Elizabeth de Portzamparc.
