While visiting family in Marseille, we decided to give it a go to this new museum and we were not disappointed. The old fort that is renovated is amazing with loads of space where one can wonder around (for free), picnic and enjoy the sights. The museum entrance cost is decently price and there are different options of catering from sandwiches to high end meals. The different exhibitions were interesting and we found the information sufficient. The staff (some of them foreign students it would seem) are friendly and helpful in general, although we heard some foreign tourist being told off quite abruptly as they were not going in the correct entrance.
Our 9 year old son discovered the kid Odysée and had a lot of fun doing the tour with the tablet, however this should be looked into for several reasons: one it is difficult for kids to be running around finding clues while adults and groups of tourists are flocking the exhibit, two it is only valid in French so what about foreign speaking kids (?), three some of the games were already malfunctioning and lastly when the clues are all discovered and the kids return the tablet, there is no small reward or thank you or well done .... that is a disappointment; surely the museum can spare a few cents for a sticker or balloon as a souvenir for the children, and if they put their logo on it, it would also be free advertising for them. In any case great venues and amazing views.
