Musée de la Marine

Closing of the Musée de la Marine et de l’Économie

On the eve of its 50th anniversary, the Musée de la Marine et de l’Économie of Marseille closes its doors. Gathering a big collection of paintings, maps, photographs and prints, this place retraced our city’s History. We regret the disappearance of the only museum highlighting our maritime heritage.

Today the Mucem, the MAAOA, the Marseille History Museum and the departmental and municipal archives have recovered more than 5000 works. We hope that we soon retrieve this heritage !
