  • 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 :-)
