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.

  • 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.
  • Very interesting Museum
