Chateau Grimaldi Musee d'Art Moderne Mediterraneen, Cagnes-sur-Mer
(3.9/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
A castle turned into an art museum, Chateau Grimaldi Musee d'Art Moderne Mediterraneen is one of the finest pieces of architecture you can visit. Occupied first by the Greeks and then the Romans, the château was built by a French admiral. The view from the tower of the chateau is spectacular and moving inside the corridors you will feel that you have entered into that ancient time when this place used to be occupied. The view is great with the Alps standing right all around you and the valley just below the museum. Some great and interesting art works and antiques are displayed here. There is also an elaborate coverage of the treatment of olives during that time which is quite fascinating.

  • Fascinating history of the Grimaldi family. Chateau is not too big to see everything in one visit. Views of the city and coast are wonderful! Buy the ticket that gets you into the Grimaldi and the Renoir museum and you pay less than if you buy them separately.
  • Well maintained little castle with roof top view. Has some modern art expo inside as well.
  • Beautiful views. The ticket could be cheaper.
  • Great views from the roof top
  • As the Musee was closed we walked about the Bourge Medieval - the old town. What an amazing experience. Mountains on one side covered in snow and a view to the Med on the other. Around every corner produced a photo op. A beautiful and authentic French village. Well worth a visit.
