Musée de l’Archéologie Méditerranéenne
Historic Site | 1995
The Museum of Mediterranean Archeology has the most important collection of Egyptian antiquities in France after the Louvre. The Egyptian department contains essential pieces such as the stelae of General Kasa and the table of Marseille. The Mediterranean Basin and Near East room offers a very rich ceramic and lapidary collection, some of which are unique such as the exceptional Minoan oenochoe. These collections, acquired during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, come mainly from archaeological excavations and fortuitous discoveries. By making these collections public, the Museum of Mediterranean Archeology gives them all their meaning in our current society. This is an opportunity to recall the history of a museum rich in more than 150 years of existence.
