  • 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 excavations are the best part. This was truly an ancient city so there is an incredible amount of history here and this museum does a good job. We had a good afternoon here.  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.
