Marseilles history Museum

Why is it worth a visit?

Why is the Marseille history museum is worth a visit?

I think that a glance to the Marseille history museum completes perfectly well  a tour walk in the oldest part of the city, that we call Le Panier.

Since its founding by the Greeks in 600 BC up to today, this Mediterranean city has always been dedicated entirely to its harbour : Adjacent to the archaeological site of Jardin de Vestiges, the Marseille History Museum houses a series of finds, including from ancient Greek and Roman times as well as a nod to the history of the city’s ancient port with the very well-preserved remains of a third century ship.

The exhibits continue into early Christianity, medieval times and beyond, offering a good overview of Marseille’s development.
