Museum Of European And Mediterranean Civilisations - Review

In 2013, Marseille was declared the Europe Capital of culture. To live up to that name, the city opened this museum. Its two floors of exhibits focus on comparing Mediterranean culture with European culture and how the two have shaped each other making it the only museum of its kind in the world. The museum takes you straight from antiquity to modern times in a single exhibition, and then spends a lot of time delving into the details.

Outside of the main Museum Building, the site is connected to the 12th century Fort Saint-Jean, which in addition to hosting a rich collection of Mediterranean popular and folk art, offers spectacular panoramas via a footbridge suspended over the sea (the footbridge connects the two buildings).

Museum Of European And Mediterranean Civilisations, Marseille Reviews

  • What cool design! Right on the sea! Lovely place to have a tour and see interesting artifacts. Also good place to have a bite or coffee. The place requires a few hours to see everything. I somehow managed to do it within two hours, but I'd recommended having a full afternoon to see things slowly and avoid rushing.

  • Very good permanent collection, but the temporary exhibitions are not as consistently good. The building is amazing in of itself, definitely worth a visit. The rooftop bar is very nice expecially when it's good weather, and reasonably priced.

  • A fantastic mix of old and new. Art, history, architecture and good food too. As there is loads to see a visit can easily take all day. The J4 building is fantastic.

  • Didn't go in the museum but walked from the top down. Very interesting architecture. Views along the way very nice

  • My 5 stars is purely for the architecture and sightseeing quality of MuCEM alone. It's seriously the most interesting museum I have ever seen, and superbly photogenic from all angles. The experience of walking over the walkway from Fort Saint-Jean into the cement-webbed main structure is slightly anxiety inducing in high winds, but exciting. Make sure you budget enough time to walk the surrounding to get photos from the ground and across the water. The permanent exhibitions here are small and not that interesting if you're not that into agricultural history.
