Close to the old port, the Musée du Santon has on display miniature cribs, representing the manger and nativity scene with small figurines, as well as artefacts and accessories that belong to the Provençal tradition. Modelling techniques are also explained, as well as firing the figures in the kiln and the art of painting them. With nearly 1000 exhibits, the museum provides a playful way of exploring this ancestral art. A history of Marseilles and Provence in miniature.
