What to expect

The MUCEM's exhibitions present a wealth of culture and show the social, scientific and political history of the Euro-Mediterranean world from prehistory to the present day, combining fine arts, anthropology, history, archaeology, and contemporary art. Its permanent exhibition "Le Grand Mezze", dedicated to the Mediterranean diet, takes you on the journey from "field to plate", from the colourful markets of the Mediterranean to multinational restaurant chains.

Upcoming temporary exhibitions:

Until february 7th 2022: SALAMMBô - Devoted to Flaubert's literary masterpiece, published in 1862, plunge into a whirlwind of images and sensations that reveal the extraordinary scope of this text on the arts, as well as its legacy for Mediterranean history and its contemporary relevance.
