La librairie du Mucem

Mucem Bookshop

Explore our booksellers’ selections and favourites at the Mucem’s two 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.
