In this series of photographs is as much the imposing building of the Second Empire, that behind the scenes the photographer wanted to highlight. So we can throw a curious look on Reserve Museum of Natural History and stuffed animals, this dilapidated staircase to access the roof of the palace, or the reorganization of places for a new exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts.

It exhibits paintings, sculptures, drawings from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century, and the Natural History Museum of Marseilles which occupies the right wing of the Palace since 1869.
This set is "planted" in the middle of two gardens: the Botanical Garden, which is at the same level as the Palace and Zoo located him, against there.
