In a completely renovated, 15,000-sq-metre modern space within the Centre Bourse shopping centre, this museum offers fascinating insight into Marseille’s long history. Highlights include the remains of a 3rd-century AD merchant vessel, discovered in the Vieux Port in 1974. To preserve the soaked and decaying wood, it was freeze-dried where it now sits behind glass.
