In the middle of the roman ruins there is the museum. It has got a neoclassical facade and it was built in the 1894 and here there are the most important objects of Aquincum. Along the colonnade wings there are many lapidarium.
In the museum you can find a very detail history of the town and of the warks of discovery along the years. There are many statues, bronze coins and many other objects. The most nice object is the Idraulic Organ of the firemen. It was donated in th 228 AD from Gaio Julius Viatorino to the local firemen station and it was used to weak up the fireman. The one that you see is a perfect recustruction of the original located in a museum of Budapes.
