The rooftop

The Museum’s rooftop is an elegant venue for your important events, with a 360° view of the town, guaranteed to leave unforgettable memories for all your guests. A chic atmosphere that really leaves a lasting impression.

The rooftop is big enough to accommodate 500 people. We can hold events here from the end of May to October, however if the weather conditions mean that the event cannot be held outdoors, a booking of the rooftop includes a “plan B” solution in the function room or in the lobby on Rue Romaine.

All of this, in a museum with exceptional collections, in the ideal location opposite the Arena of Nîmes, and a short distance from the train station. Spaces of varying size and shape, to accommodate groups of all sizes.

Anne Guibert, Head of Communication and Development at Amapl

It is largely thanks to the possibilities in terms of layout and installations offered by the Museum that our event was a success.
We particularly appreciated the availability and kindness of the sales and technical teams who were always able to find solutions and assist us from beginning to end.

For a second time, we chose to organise one of our events and welcomed our clients to the Musée de la Romanité, thanks to the excellent services and the ideal location overlooking the Arena
