Monday 28 December : Mucem Museum Marseille

Our plan to go skying failed as there was zero snow so instead we decided to go and visit  Marseille newest museum the MUCEM,The Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations. Interesting architecture and great location on the old port. Quite general but some interesting religious art and a temporary thematic exhibition on Panoramas.
Still not so sure about some of those new museums , i do find them too sparce, full of empty scape inside. For me a museum should be overwhelming with stuff everywhere, i like feeling it would take many visits to see it all. so on that level i was particularly bowled over, but the thematic on Panaorama was interesting and the outside space is nice as lots of passerelles and able to visit all the different levels and tours of the old fort and amazing views of Marseille old port. Still it somehow took being there from start to closing time.
