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 - Write a Review

  • An interesting slant on the traditional museum concept. The exhibits are well laid out and they create a good level of interaction; the collection is however small in scale. The audio guide is a must if you want to fully enjoy the museum: especially if you're a non-french speaker. The staff are very helpful here.

  • Don't waste your time and money (9,50 €) on this museum. It's best part is a building itself, and it's free. The museum consists of one room of exhibits from the Mediterranean region, but there is nothing new there for anyone who have successfully graduated the secondary school. Also, if you happened not to speak French, bear in mind that all exhibit signs are in French. Same applies to their exhibitions, something hard to imagine in a newly built museum of 21 century.

  • The building itself is the main attraction. Very few exhibits, not particularly interesting or unique. Signs and descriptions in French.

  • We didn't visit the museum. But we enjoyed some drinks on the terrace. Very pleasant. Building is really beautiful !

  • MuCem was an unexpected surprise, o loved it since I got in, superb start like, first class. They were approachable, supportive. I'd come back for another seasonal exhibition because the one I went (Nous sommes Foot) was extraordinarily well organized and with very interactive information ... Thanks for everything guys
