Librairie du MuCEM, Marseille

(4/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
Enrich your understanding of European and Mediterranean civilizations at Librairie du MuCEM, which takes an interdisciplinary approach to recounting society throughout the ages. The museum brings together all the disciplines of the social sciences, including anthropology, political science, sociology, history, archaeology, and art history, to examine the foundation of the Mediterranean's rich and diverse past. Displays take a comparative approach when depicting the influencing religions and bordering countries that played a major role in the development of the Mediterranean. A marvel in itself, the building that houses the museum is the work of architect Rudy Ricciotti--deliberately and openly facing the sea. Stop for a bite to eat at the restaurant on the top floor; it has a spectacular terrace with panoramic views of the bay. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Marseille holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Librairie du MuCEM and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We visited the first Sunday of the month because the entry was free, the Museum has nothing extraordinary but the gateway to the fort St. John and the view of the sea and the Islands is magnificent.

  • See for its architecture which fits perfectly to the environment. Access from the port or the fort which can also be visited.
