Explore Mediterranean History: The Mucem Museum

The Mucem Museum in Marseille was opened in 2013 and within one year, it became one of the 50 most visited museums in the world. Dedicated to European and Mediterranean civilisations, the museum is split over three sites holding over 350,000 pieces of art, artefacts and documents. When viewed together, the collections help to illustrate the dynamic history of the cultures that have shaped the Mediterranean over thousands of years. The J4 building, designed by Rudy Ricciotti in collaboration with architect Roland Carta, is one of the most stunning of the museum with its sea-facing square façade of latticed concrete. Inside, visitors can view both permanent and temporary exhibitions, and enjoy the unparalleled views from the roof terrace. This one-of-a-kind museum is worth the drive from Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc or Chateau Saint-Martin & Spa for an enriching afternoon visit.
