After two years of restoration, the Museum of Ethnography re-opened it’s doors in 2011 in the old medicine faculty next to Place de la Victoire, and is almost 120 years old.
The museum first opened in Bordeaux in 1894. As a university museum, its collection of Ethnographically relevant objects grew and grew as students and professors brought back pieces from their travels abroad.
The building alone is worth the visit and could be combined with an afternoon stroll the Marché des Capucins and Saint Michel down to the river.
LOCAL TIP: The first Sunday of each month, all the museums are free! (Except in July and August)
