  • Would recommend for its general culture, if you're in old antibes, must see the Picasso and peynet Museum.

  • Small museum but what humor with these drawings of Mr Peynet, we enjoy his posters of advertisements, these traits lovers who made the fame of the artist. Affordable entrance to this small museum and frankly do here.

  • Cute and really funny illustrations.
  • A nice Museum, small but packed with drawings, prints, photos and various items, all of Peynet. You pass a pleasant hour and only cost 3 euros. Also there is always a second view, dedicated ud another artist, as Kristian and now Dubout/Pagnol. The staff are friendly and there is a space where you can rest peacefully. I do occasionally go there, because there is always associated with a view by another artist.

  • On the square of the Republic, not to be missed.
