Located within what used to be the city’s station sanitaire (quarantine station), this museum forms part of the cluster of exhibition spaces lining Marseille’s polished J4 esplanade. It showcases the permanent “Memory of the Quarantine Station,” a sound and light show. Popular temporary exhibitions have included Marseille éternelle, a collection of artworks inspired by the city, and L'école de Nice, focusing on the group of innovative 1960s Niçois artists that included Yves Klein and Arman. The museum’s terraced Régards Café offers superb views over the Mediterranean.
