  • The choice of exhibitions is often attractive to me, and the permanent collections are not lacking spice. It is a Museum of art contemporary, but quite accessible, mannered and fun for families, including children, are. It's same damage that the Museum is not more forward, he deserves more publicity.

  • The site is fairly eccentric except for me which was about level rental! Outside would be to improve to make it more visible! Amazing show on hip hop and see on the permanent part. Discreet and welcoming staff. I think that the place has a nice margin of progression for the next shows!

  • Very beautiful exhibition around the "hip-hop" culture. Photographs and other visual representations are very comfortable for a result very consistent with this culture. We can feel back in the 1980s by now. It is possible in just under two hours to do the tour with pleasure. The permanent collection is relatively unusual and less interesting. To do.

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
