Built over the ruins of a Roman villa, the Museum of Shahba (le Musée de Chahba) contains a small but exquisite collection of mosaics found in situ. It is one of the highlights of the visit to Shahba, but only takes a few minutes to see. Note that the museum is closed on Tuesdays, which happened to be the day I visited! Luckily, the caretaker was nice enough to allow us in nonetheless, and we of course matched his generosity with a baksheesh. The museum is located near the Roman Baths.
