Musee d'Aquitaine reviews
This was a fine museum, reviewing the history of the area from cave man days to the future. Of particular note on the first floor were some very nice Roman pieces, especially funerary headstones...

This is a phenomenal museum with 400,000 years of history from Paleolithic period to Iron Age, to Roman period through medieval times. The museum takes you to the history of Bordeaux area up until the present period with its vast collection of artifacts. It’s second floor had great exhibits on Bordeaux’s shipping trade routes and maritime history. Give yourself a full day to absorb and learn the history of this region of France. One of the finest museums of its kind.
A very interesting museum about the region. I give 4 stars as I think it would be good to clearly inform visitors about all the sections in advance. Indeed, as others did and said, we spent too much time at the beginning and we had not enough time for the end (and we did spend already 2.5 hours inside). I would recommend at least 3 hours to visit and if less I would advise to go a bit faster on the first sections in order not to miss the last ones. Minus points : not many toilets available during the full visit and no bench to rest (just a chair sometimes).
