The outside areas are free. You are persuaded to buy tickets to exhibitions including one about the history of the Fort. If entering from Vieux Port be aware of the very steep climb which could be avoided if entering from other side. No warning notices...More

The building is right on the harbour of Marseille. Fantastic architectural design. I saw the Ai Wei Wei exhibition which was on and the space was excellent for showing his type of art. There was also an exhibition of the history of the Mediterranean on...More

The architecture and location is worth the visit let alone the wonderful art inside. There was a wonderful Ai WaiWai exhibition on when we visited.

This was one of the most unique museums I’ve ever seen. It is not a typical “art” or “history” museum, rather many of the exhibits combine art, history, geography, and sociology. This is well worth a visit! Be sure to see both the Mucem and...More

There is lots to see here, not least the architecture of the building itself. And even if you don't want to spend time looking at exhibits, lunch or a drink on the rooftop provides an amazing view of the bay. There is an engineered walkway...More

As a frequent barefooter, I was shocked to be told by a rather unfriendly member of staff that i was not allowed to be barefoot in the museum for 'secunity reasons' and would have to leave! It was even implied that my state of shoelessness...More

Have visited 3 times and do not tire of it. The buildings and site are marvelous, the ingenious and very inventive use of concrete in a totally original way is wonderful. Every corner is beautiful.
