Fort Saint-jean - Review

Located at the entrance to the Old Port this massive museum, dedicated entirely to the history and culture and impact of the Mediterranean, has three major sections. Only two of them are at this location. These are the J4 building and the For Saint Jean. The third building, Centre de Conservation et de Ressources in the Belle de Mai neighbourhood, merely stores the museum’s collections in the city center.

 The 17th century historic photo was open to the public for the first time as a part of this Museum. Even without the museums and exhibitions the fort is interesting all by itself. Check out the table, the gardens, the courtyards, the fountains, and the elevated viewpoints. Meet people at the Place d’Armes agora, examine the plants at Jardin des Migrations, and use the audio guide to immerse yourself in the sites’ 2000 year old history. The Galerie d’Actualite, the Georges-Henri Riviere, and the chapel are the exhibition spaces at the building. A 70 meter long footbridge connects the fort to the Panier neighborhood. The second, 115 meter long footbridge connects it to J4.

 The stylish J4 building houses the semi-permanent exhibits of the Galerie de la Mediterranee, an auditorium, research and workshop rooms, and offices. A striking architectural feature is the concrete latticework. Climb the exterior ramp to the roof terrace. It was built by Rudy Ricciotti.

 In these spaces the museum explores the cultures, mythologies, confluences, and evolutions of the Mediterranean nations through events, temporary exhibitions, a collection of over 1 million works of art - paintings, prints and sculptures, furniture, tools, vehicles, reliquaries, jewellery, costumes, textiles, fairground. Keep yourself updated on the website for upcoming events.

The museum would be terrific enough all on its own, but the views of the sea and city from its every corner are just the cherry on top of the cake.

Fort Saint-jean, Marseille Reviews

  • A great place to explore, either alone or in the company of kids or adults. The connection between the fort and the Mucem across the water is an engineering gem. Both the bridge and the Mucem's outer hull have been constructed using black, polished, concrete. A joy for engineers and lay persons alike. The admission to roam the fort and Mucem's perimeter and roof terrace are free! You can have a drink or bite at either the Mucem roof terrace or inside the fort. As at many other points in the old part of Marseille, there are plenty of beautiful views.

  • Free entrance into the fort!explore the area and feel like you are the king of the castle!

  • Great Place to visit. Just mind the storm if you went to the outer ring of the fort. Only the Museum cost some money. Worth a visit.

  • Come here and pay for the museum, or just enjoy the views around the museum of the port for free. Both are entirely worth the visit. If you walk to the museum, it's a short path the the old port and to the Neo-Byzantine church just opposite of the sea. Incredibly clean area with beautiful architecture and amazing views. Well worth the stop for any type of traveler

  • Beautifully renovated, gorgeous architecture with an amazing blend of old and new as the walkways connect to Mucem
