  • For 4 euro you simply must visit this museum, it takes about 2 hours to see it all. You will get a good view on the history of Bordeaux. 
  • We have been visiting the Museum of Aquitaine as part of training. The guide who hosted our visit was exciting, funny, interesting... This is a very comprehensive Museum. What pride to have a museum that contains such beautiful pieces of exception. Great respect to the guide who escorted us. This gentleman is blind & we have completely forgotten that he was. Beautiful message of hope, & Kudos to the Museum of Aquitaine to hire people like him & do a little forward thinking... In short, exceptional!

  • 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.
  • Excellent history of the region and Bordeaux with stunning displays from pre-history to the 19th century. Some truly wonderful artifacts.
  • good football exhibition
