A fascinating dive into archaeology, ethnography and history dating back millennia.
A holistic look at this region of France.
The Aquitaine region of which Bordeaux is part, has a past in which agricultural activity has been documented as far back as prehistory. On Cours Pasteur, this 5,000-square-metre (53,800-square-foot) museum brings together the ethnography, archaeology, and history of the city and region, receiving 150,000 visitors annually. You'll also find temporary exhibitions of immediate local relevance ("The Soul of Wine") as well as ranging farther afield ("African Art"). There are also kids' workshops on Roman mosaics along with other events including conferences, concerts, and multimedia presentations.
