This was quite impressive. Lots of important artifacts from this area where there were ancient Greek and Roman settlements. Nicely displayed.

Small but fairly comprehensive archeology department, with nice exhibits from iron age Italy, Etruria, Greece and Cyprus, as well as some Near Eastern pieces from Susa and Khorsabad. Impressive photo exhibition on Syria, with images from before the destruction. Sadly the Egypt exhibition as well as the ethnographical sections of the museum were closed at the time of my visit, without further explanation.
Gorgeous architecture, even if you are not really into archeology, come and enjoy the place!
I have never felt so unwelcome at any museum. Gangs of staff guarding the exhibition rooms with some of them thinking it’s okay to yell at visitors. Very unpleasant. Much better off visiting the Marseille History Museum, especially as you are not expected to carry a wriggly baby in your arms there and allowed to use a stroller (in contrast to this museum where it’s considered a danger to the exhibitions apparently 🙄).
The employee selling tickets does not speak English!! For a job that requires to deal with tourists from all over the world every day, that is just unacceptable! I coundn't communicate in French so I left. This kind of disrespect to the visitors does not worth the money of the ticket.
It's amazing museums, I love it :)
