This new Marseille museum is wonderful. In three separate rooms, it tells the story of the French revolution and the role that Marseille citizens played in it. The use of sound and audio visuals is innovative and effective. It is tucked away on a little...More

Totally overpriced museum. This is a very small museum, with nothing much except a movie. Te English translation didn't work. Nothing much also to do there. Waste of time.

Thanks for expressing your opinion. However, I have to say that you do not have to wait for a football game in order to listen to La Marseillaise in tis original and official version - at least three of them are recent recordings (between 2005...More
