The Archaeological Museum was founded in 1858 near the parish church: it sheltered, first the funeral monuments and the votive stelae found on the heights in the vicinity of Saverne, then those dug out when R. Forrer undertook excavations under the wall surrounding the Roman town of “Tres Tabernae” at the beginning of the 20th century. The collections were transferred to the south wing of the Rohan Palace in 1970. The archaeological collections are mainly composed of Gallo-Roman artifacts displayed in 8 rooms: 4 are devoted to the deities and the other 4 are dedicated to funeral rites and monuments (house-stelae, stelae with inscriptions). There are also exhibits about the Roman town of Saverne and everyday utensils.
