Marseille's Contemporary Art Museum (MAC), which is a direct translation of the French Musée d'Art Contemporain, is a bit out of the way in Marseille's 8th arrondissement, but that's no reason to leave it out of a city itinerary. The museum is more relevant to the world of contemporary art than ever before, especially with the recent Year of Culture hosted by Marseille.
The permanent collection features works from the mid-20th century to the present, while the ever-changing temporary exhibitions highlight the work of new and emerging artists from around the world. However, there is a focus on French artists, which gives foreign visitors an excellent overview of the country’s current arts scene. In addition, the complex that houses MAC also hosts concerts, conferences, panel discussions and many other events.
The Contemporary Art Museum (Musée d'Art Contemporain) is located at 69 avenue de Haïfa in the 8th arrondissement. Take the metro to Rond-Point du Prado and then bus 23 or 45 to Haïfa-Marie-Louise. The museum is closed on Mondays, Christmas Day and on the first of January, May and November. Otherwise, the museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets cost 5 euro for adults and are free for kids under 18. On Sunday mornings, tickets are free until 1 p.m.
