Opened in 2013, the long-anticipated MuCEM is the first national gallery in France to be located outside of Paris. More than 250,000 objects collected from throughout the Mediterranean region are exhibited here, along with local prints, photographs, and historical postcards. Temporary exhibitions focus on anything from Mediterranean football to Arabian graffiti, while the most eye-catching event of 2018 was the exhibition by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei. The premises encompass the 12th-century Fort Saint-Jean, its suspended gardens, and Michelin-starred-chef Gérard Passédat’s primarily organic restaurant, La Table du Môle.
