Chateau Grimaldi Musee d'Art Moderne Mediterraneen, Cagnes-sur-Mer

3.9
#4 of 8 in Things to do in Cagnes-sur-Mer
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.

    Wonderful place to spend an hour- fantastic view from the top, lovely interior that has been redone. The olive oil museum on the ground floor is interesting. Mostly in French, so either have a good translator ap or be/bring a francophone.

    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.

    We had a great time here although the Grimaldy family wasn't there. :P Nice views of the town from the top.

    Well maintained little castle with roof top view. Has some modern art expo inside as well.
