Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Really Great museum with a lot of interesting and different exhibits. The curation is quite different to most museums I have visited and I found the approach very engaging. The architecture and the buildings themselves are also well worth seeing. Tickets are reasonable for the experience. Bear in mind you don't need to buy a ticket to just visit and see the buildings and really through the whole complex.
  • Its very nice! It was surprisingly free for almost the entire thing! It has a cool food area and an area to go beside the water! There are some secret doors and tunnels too to explore! And the views are really nice!
