Marseille History Museum history
The Marseille History Museum (Musee d’Histoire de Marseille) chronicles the city’s past since its founding by the Greeks in 600 BC up to the eighteenth century.
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.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours!
