The Musée Romain de Lausanne-Vidy in Lausanne is a Roman museum that primarily displays findings from the site of Lousonna, a Roman settlement that lasted into the 4th century.

The museum is housed in a former private home and displays just about every sort of Roman artifact: tools, home objects, votive figures, coins, even toga pins.

Guided tours of the nearby archaeological digs are conducted on the last Sunday of every month.
