The history of the Regards de Provence Museum
The conversion of the sanitary station
The Regards de Provence Museum was set up in the former Health Station, built in 1946, on the occasion of “Marseille Provence, European Capital of Culture”, in 2013.
The history of the Station Sanitaire is important for the city, as it was one of the main entry points and departure points for travellers and immigrants to Marseille.
This rehabilitation and transformation into a cultural venue was aimed at establishing its structure in a permanent location in the city, and was redesigned to be dedicated to the collection of the Regards de Provence Foundation.
Located on the seafront, between the Cathedral of La Major, the Mucem and the Villa Méditerranée, the Regards de Provence museum is at the heart of an important cultural centre.
