Musee des Docks Romains, Marseille

4.1
This Roman commercial warehouse is one of the few that exists worldwide. During the war, in 1947 the ancient docks were accidently discovered. It was at this site, the Musee des Docks Romains was built in 1963. You can marvel at the ancient Roman agricultural resourcefulness when you visit the museum and take a closer look at the 30 dolia or large ceramic roman jars, which they used to store wine or oil. You can also view many articles that were discovered during underwater excavation of shipwrecks near the Marseilles’ harbor.

  • Small museum showing excavated ancient Roman warehouse with giant amphoras. If you are interested in archeology, you must visit it (if you can find it...). Free entrance.
  • Free, interesting and easy to walk to from the vieux port. Recommended.
  • Free on Sundays, nice supplement to the Museum of the History or Marseille; no English
  • Great museum and it is free
  • Good little museum, the only problem was that there were no translations from French. But it is free to enter
