Museum of Aquitaine

The Museum of Aquitaine is a treasure trove of regional and non-European archaeological and ethnological artefacts. Housed on a site that was once a 16th-century convent, it offers a fascinating insight into the history of Bordeaux and Aquitaine. With over 70,000 pieces tracing the region's history from prehistoric times to the present day, alongside 5,000 artefacts from Africa and Oceania, the museum provides a comprehensive understanding of the city's rich past and harbour history.
