  • I really liked the museum. It has very interesting sections of the history of the city/region from prehistory till the 19th century. One point less cause many explanations are only in French.  more »

  • Nice and very well put museum telling the History of Bordeaux from the Paleolithic age to modern times... some people noted that some exhibits are only in french but you can have a good time ... We liked rhe exhibit about the slave trade from Bordeaux.. sad chapter in human history... Great museum ... highly recommended
  • it's a museum where you can spend a whole day... loads to learn. it covers the history of the area of Bordeaux from prehistory to modern. the videos (for me especially the ones on the ground floor that show the life prehistoric people) are very interesting. it was thursday when i went there and it was not crowded the entire day, like for most of the time i was almost alone in the exhibition hall (of course there were staffs and they were really nice), so the visit was really relaxing.
  • A very fair museum. I learn so much about the slave trade from this museum. It is so difficult to find a museum fairly displays topic on slave trade and colonise power.
  • I visited only the ground floor. All the information is only in French, which I found surprising for a big city museum.
  • This place is so full of culture. There is a really nice ambiance and the staff although small are very nice and understanding.
