    It is collection from different times from different parts of the world. Texts are only in French. But one can understand where it comes from, if one looks at a map in relation to the artifacts from sites around Australia, South America, the Arctic, Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia. What made an impression on me is coming from objects of Oceania and Egypt: shapes, masks. The collection is not so great, but gives the impression. One can go out in the backyard. There, one can go up the stairs in the Tower (Le Suquet) to the top of the tower and stand on the roof. Height is 22 m. Wonderful views of Cannes.
