The Musée d’Aquitaine in Bordeaux is one of the largest French regional history museums outside Paris.

>> Currently, the Musée d'Aquitaine is open on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm. For other days of the week, refer to the practical information at the bottom of the page.

The sculptures of famous people on the pediment welcome visitors to a place where the most famous Bordelais of all is buried. Michel de Montaigne nevertheless wrote "when all is said and done, the only glory I have found in my life is to have lived it peaceably". The tomb of the famous author and philosopher is one of the main attractions of the room devoted to 16th century Bordeaux.
Prior to becoming a museum, the building housed the Bordeaux University faculty of arts and humanities for many years. Opened in 1987, this 3,000 m² museum encompasses prehistoric times, Eleanor of Aquitaine, the Black Prince, Montaigne, Tourny, etc.

On the first floor, in the area called “Bordeaux and Aquitaine from 1715 to the present day”, there is a walkway dedicated to the Gironde vineyards: terroir, grape varieties, diseases of the vine, tooling, etc. An interesting approach for amateurs.

To discover especially the last two renovated spaces dedicated
