  • We visited the museum to fill in an hour or so and ended up spending much longer there. It's an absolute steal for only 5 Euros and you truly get a glimpse of just how old the area is, and the history...  more »
  • Monumental, well maintained building, in-and outside, sympathetic reception staff, attractive presentation of objects with appropriate comments, audio guide for hands, particularly (learn) rich exhibition, both archaeological and newer times to the region, interesting, even fascinating, a source historical knowledge and expanding insights about man and the world. Highly recommended! City Centre in a pleasant area.

  • A nice museum, going from cave men to modern history. A lot of the explanations are in French only, but the later section is a bit more accessible.
  • Interesting exhibitions that range from early stone age to present day. Wonderful selection of ancient Roman stone work and mosaics as well as glass wear and pottery. Very little information in English so it was hard to learn about what was being looked at.
  • Very interesting permanent exhibition about the slave commerce of Bordeaux. Free entrance on first Sunday of each month.
  • Really recommend the second floor, beautiful exposition there.
  • Nice museum :-)
