Explore our booksellers’ selections and favourites at the Mucem’s three shop locations.
Main Shop (J4, ground floor)
A general bookshop in Mediterranean tones that showcases the humanities, history and political current affairs. A specialist press stand provides the finishing touch. You can discover great Mediterranean authors, pique your curiosity in the urban planning and architecture sections, stroll amidst gorgeous photography books and make the acquaintance of comic books. Our children’s section is also worth a look – or even a special visit for its own sake.
Exhibition Boutique (J4, 2nd floor)
This space is dedicated to the Mucem’s exhibitions. Here, you will find exhibition catalogues, but also magnets, postcards and more.
Fort Saint-Jean Exhibition Boutique (entrance via the Saint-Laurent footbridge or the fort’s esplanade)
The third bookshop is nestled in the middle of the Fort Saint-Jean. For books on gardens and cooking, plus children’s books, and to explore Marseille and its region through current events and literature.
|Monday to Sunday||11:00-6:00|
On the Mucem Bookshop’s website (in French), you will find activities, events, staff favourites and bibliographies linked to the exhibitions. You can also place online orders.
The Mucem Bookshop is an Actes Sud bookshop and belongs to Librairie Maupetit, located on the Canebière.
