New Centre of the Augusta Raurica museum

The new scientific and administrative centre of the Augusta Raurica open-air museum (Sammlungszentrum) in the canton of Basel-Landschaft was recently inaugurated.

The centre is near the Ostport, the Roman viaduct on the east side of this Roman city, and the archaeological zoo. The centre concentrates all the museum’s activities in one building. Previously, the departments were spread over five locations.

The library and various storage and research rooms for archaeological finds have state-of-the-art equipment. The building also has seminars and other reception rooms. The centre houses the administration and other departments of the museum.
