Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / Bouches-du-Rhone / Marseille / Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations
Enrich your understanding of European and Mediterranean civilizations at Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations, which takes an interdisciplinary approach to recounting society throughout the ages. The museum brings together all the disciplines of the social sciences, including anthropology, political science, sociology, history, archaeology, and art history, to examine the foundation of the Mediterranean's rich and diverse past. Displays take a comparative approach when depicting the influencing religions and bordering countries that played a major role in the development of the Mediterranean. A marvel in itself, the building that houses the museum is the work of architect Rudy Ricciotti--deliberately and openly facing the sea. Stop for a bite to eat at the restaurant on the top floor; it has a spectacular terrace with panoramic views of the bay. Using our online itinerary creator, Marseille attractions like Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Extremely huge place with excellent facilities. Will need almost 3 hrs to explore completely. Beautiful place with no of sitting and relaxing area. Also have a bar and a cafe. Fort is nice. And the best part is that it has free entry. Which is just shocking as it is really well maintained
Meow. This was a lovely complex to walk around. I thought it would have more educational permanent exhibitions, but it was only walking around on the grounds. That’s free. The temporary exhibitions are paid for and there were 4 on when we visited today. The new building is interesting. Nice they’re planting edible gardens so it’s a living space rather than a relic. Lots of public free spaces for people to relax and eat their own food.
