  • Great museum for all ages. I visited in Aug 2018 with my partner and 13yr old son. Spent a good 2 hours looking round. The displays are very detailed with good translation provided by the QR tech...  more »

  • The artifacts are well below the quality of most good museums. It's as if they acquired the leftovers that other museums with better funding passed on.
  • Considering that ships have been sailing to Marseille for almost 3,000 years, there’s a lot of history to this city. The museum does a good job taking you from very early history to modern times. There are headsets that translate the many videos to English.
  • A good sites with loads of historical information
  • Quite large collection spanning more than two thousand years, showing Marseilles history since ancient Greek and Etruscan period. It houses remainings of several Roman ships, Greek pottery, everyday items, funerary items, models of the city in different periods... It also shows more recent history and development of Marseille. Nicely organized and marked, the only problem is that all descriptions are in French. It has several interactive stands for kids. Marseille has a very rich history and if you want to truly understand the city, this is a place you must visit.
  • Interesting place with some games for kids.
