With videos, written documents, photographs, models and museography and interactive terminals, the gallery highlights key periods in the evolution of Martigues from the first traces of human civilisation to the lightening development of the commune in the second half of the 20th century.

The Galerie also presents the city of the future with exhibitions of urban, cultural and social projects for Martigues.
The exhibition covers more than just a few centuries. It covers the complete history of Martigues from the prehistoric period to current time.
