  • From prehistory to the present day, the Museum makes us discover the past of Bordeaux. Beautiful presentations and open a historical side of slavery

  • This museum traces the history of Aquitaine and especially Bordeaux, from prehistory to nowadays. He exhibits a variety of artifacts, documents, art works, videos, etc. One can easily spend a full day, or two, both presentations are well mounted, airy and very interesting. A large section is given to the commercial activities of Bordeaux from the 18th until the first third of the 20th century. Must see!

  • 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 :-)
