The Marseille History Museum (Musée d’Histoire de Marseille) is the local historical and archaeological museum of Marseille in France. It was opened in 1983, the first town historical museum in France, to display the major archaeological finds discovered when the site was excavated in 1967 for commercial redevelopment and the construction of the Centre de la Bourse shopping centre. The museum building, which is entered from within the centre, opens onto the “jardin des vestiges”, a garden containing the stabilised archaeological remains of classical ramparts, port buildings, a necropolis and so on.
The Marseille History Museum chronicles the city’s history since Ancient Greek times.
