I have to admit: we have seen better and the place isn't really airconditioned, so on a hot day it isn't the museum of choice maybe, but with the Marseille Pass, when you are in the neighbourhood you might want to consider a visit.

The staff do not speak English and all the information inside the museum was in French and therefore we could not follow what was written in the various items. There is also not much to see. The park, however, surrounding the palace is a just see, however the museum leaves much to be desired.

The only beautiful thing about this museum is the park that surrounds it... I find it at least unacceptable in a museum situated in a tourist city, that nobody was speaking English and the personnel was very rude. And not only that, but when they realized that we were foreigners they insisted on speaking French making me and my brother... More
