The MuCEM is a place open to all and multidisciplinary where anthropology, history, archeology, history of art and contemporary art intersect. It presents a cultural, social, but also scientific and political view of the plurality of civilizations that have constituted the Mediterranean world from prehistory to the present day.

The MuCEM is also a real city of knowledge and exchanges that addresses the current issues of this world: beyond major exhibitions, it offers all audiences readings, debates, conferences, performing arts, cinema, documentaries, performances or simply walks in the Mediterranean gardens of Fort Saint-Jean.

Floating between the sky and the water, the MuCEM is, by its very situation, a vast project for the Mediterranean. Open on the wide, it draws a horizon where the two shores of the Mediterranean have an appointment.

A museum, 3 sites:

> The J4: The new building, built on the old J4 port pier by the architect Rudy Ricciotti associated with Roland Carta, is the heart of MuCEM. The J4 (15,000 m2) hosts two exhibition trays: the first, with The Mediterranean Gallery, dedicated to the discovery of the major stages of Mediterranean civilizations. The second plateau hosts temporary exhibitions.

> Fort Saint-Jean: Fort Saint-Jean restored (15,000 m2) is a historic monument whose origins date back to the 12th century. Connected to the J4 by a high bridge, thrown over the sea, it allows the visitor to enjoy spectacular views, invisible until then. The site deserves a visit during a stay in Marseille because it has many surprises. The public is invited to wander through a new Mediterranean garden and discover the richness of MuCEM's collections of popular arts and traditions, as well as contemporary Mediterranean creation. It also offers outdoor shows, a café and a bookshop. A second footbridge connects it to the Panier district, starting from the Royale gate of the fort towards the Saint-Laurent church.

> The Center for Conservation and Resources (CCR): A third site, in the Belle de Mai district, houses the Center for Conservation and Resources (CCR - 14,000 m2), designed by architect Corinne Vezzoni associated with André Jollivet. A place of conservation for the collections, the CCR is also an opportunity to visit the backstage of the museum, which includes several spaces open to the public.
