  • MUCEM next. This building is very characteristic. Gravity couldn't say nothing, as if in defiance of the せりだした in the air, on the top floor, is a strange shaped building. The Seri beneath the left part there is a pond. I enjoyed only the appearance.

  • The museum is of no interest, but it is placed in a nice spot next to the mucem. Only if you have time.  more »
  • as noted by other reviewers this small museum lies internally, behind the old port from fort Saint-Jean heading towards the hotel de la ville. It's an interesting space just below street level which houses Roman artefacts found during the renovation of the buildings in the area. Many amphorae, several large bottles, statues, various artifacts and even what remains of an ancient craft. There is also an impressive collection of images of the port area from the late 1800s early 1900s

  • I could not believe that a museum can impress me in this way, but here on, it happened. For so many years I live in this city and I finally found time to enjoy an enriching tour. It was good that at the entrance, a back lit panel offers a historiographical information, that allowed me to better understand this unique space.
