Superb museum telling the story of Bordeaux throughout the ages. Would put aside 2/3 hours to visit as there is a lot to see.

At €5 for full access to the permanent and temporary collections, this museum is very good value (or free with a Bordeaux pass). It begins in 'pre-history' with artifacts from ancient times to modern Bordeaux. It is open full days from Tuesday to Saturday, 11am...More

Interesting museum but had an odd rather sarcastic "welcome to europe" remark from the ticket seller - 5 euros each and could use up a few hours would have rated it higherbut obviously some staff have issues with the UK

Very interesting museum with a good collection of mostly regional archaeology and history. However, the parts of when the slave trade was introduced into France seemed to be washed over a bit

If you’re interested in prehistoric artefacts you will enjoy this museum. I found there were not many surprises in the later sections. There was an interesting video on the restoration of a tomb ( Montaigne I think) and a fairly good exhibition on surfing
