Provence Sights

Musée du Vieux Marseille (Museum of Old Marseille)

Updated 12/18/2013

Fodor's Review

This museum is found in the 16th-century Maison Diamantée (Diamond House)—so named for its diamond-faceted Renaissance facade—built in 1570 by a rich merchant. Focusing on the history of Marseille, the newly reopened, painstakingly renovated museum features santons, crèches, and furniture, offering a glimpse into 18th-century Marseille life.
