The real reason to come is the building -- a beautifu Baroque structure. The play of light off the arches will keep you fascinated for hours. There is a charming courtyard cafe. This is a surprisingly good museum once you're here.

The collections of the Museum aren't the most interesting in France but it might be worth a visit with kids. And "Le Musée d'archéologie méditerranéenne" is located in "La Vieille Charité" which is a former hospital located in one of the most interesting part of...More
