Museum of Mediterranean Archaeology
A journey back through the Mediterranean of the distant past.
For archaeology buffs.
Located in the Vieille Charité, in the picturesque Le Panier district, this museum naturally covers the archaeological heritage of Marseille and the French Riviera with their own many layers of centuries' worth history and conquest, along with Rome, Greece, Mesopotamia, and other civilisations around the Mediterranean basin. But where it especially shines is its collection of the mummies, hieroglyphs, papyri, and jewelry of ancient Egypt, second in France only to that of the Louvre. It's open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with an entrance fee of 3 euros.
