Interesting museum that recalls the transformation of Aquitaine province from prehistory till modern days. The price is really low (5€) for such a vast collection of objects. It was nice to see young guys from art school taking inspiration for their drawings.

I have over expected. Because I heard the status of slavery trade in Bordeaux is higher than in Nantes. I expected this museum to show a rich past of Bordeaux. But after I went to the museums of both. I didn't find this one with more displayed evidences and explanations. And the souvenir shop is so small. Even though the roman ruins are good, it is a little bit boring with rare English notes.

Really low price (5 euro or 3 discount) for a huge museum with a lot of things. The pre-history exhibit is laid out really well with english translations of most exhibits. Roman to middle age periods are french only. Really enjoyed the triangular trade/slavery exhibit. The modern section was a little confusing as it was mixed with the ethnography exhibit.

Interesting museum that showcases the history of the region of Aquitaine and Bordeaux from Ancient Rome to the 20th century. Lots of content. I recommend to visit on the first Sunday of the month if possible when museums in France have free entry.

Good loop of history from prehistoric to modern times. Doesn't take too long to visit and cheap entry fee. Worth visiting.

Great museum, but focuses only on prehistory and the slave trade. Very little inbetween.

Wonderful museum with a very fair price (5 euros). It describes the history of the Aquitaine region focusing in the city of Bordeaux. It covers from the prehistoric times to the actual date. Book at least 2 hours for a quick visit to the museum though more time will be needed to enjoy it completely. The descriptions of the items exposed are in French and normally also in English and Spanish

Could have spent all day in the museum. It was so interesting and informative. Highly recommended.

Loved this place. An absolute bargain. Spent almost two hours in there and could have spent longer. The prehistoric section is quite long (so I hope you find flint tools interesting) and they could have made more of the Eleanor of Aquitaine section but the Roman and Bordeaux city sections were great. Only about half the displays have descriptions in English, so either brush up on your French or have some idea of what you are looking at beforehand.

Spent the afternoon here to escape the heat and also learn about the history of the region. It was really well laid out and the exhibitions were very interesting. The staff also went above and beyond to help us find somewhere to change our infant daughter's diaper in lieu of a baby change room.

Very good museum, very high quality with varied exhibits. Plenty and very informative on the slave trade but only one wall given to the French Revolutions which was a bit of a let down for us.

Excellent value for a 5 eur ticket. Informative, interesting. Temporary exposition on Jack London is great, too.
