  • We stumbled across the museum after walking up to the church. Odd by interesting collection. We enjoyed climbing the watchtower. 
  • We had the chance to visit the Museum during the heritage days and enjoy a guided tour by the Director of the Museum who was able by his words, present the main artifacts and works by stimulating a reflection on our museum experience visitors. Very interesting. Thank you!

  • Lovely building, great view of the city, pretty small collections. On the other hand, what paradox, really shocking, on one side a male Lady 60 long-haired gray, a real "Biddy" one has the impression of disturbing. Shameful home for a prestigious city, and on the other side, LUCKILY, a gracious hostess of origin Senegalese who has been patient and adorable and could give us explanations on various musical instruments.

  • Worth the Climb! This is a must for a trip to Cannes. You can see all of Cannes and Mandelieu. I kind of walked quickly through the museum because I prefer to have a view.
  • Best view in Cannes by far! Amazing scenery from the watchtower inside the museum. You can see the watchtower from anywhere in the city & when you climb to the tower's summit, you have a full panoramic view of Cannes. Fabulous! If you are 25 ans or younger, you can get in for only 3 euros! Amazing! And the museum is pretty cool too.
  • A bit of a walk uphill, but the views are breathtaking! A few interesting pieces in the museum, but the true gem on display is the 360 degree view of the city and coastline from the top of the tower. Definitely not to be missed
  • Warto odwiedzić dla widoku z wieży !
  • Where can I see the whole of Khan. Bunching up in less than 5 minutes, not once is nothing short of amazing. Free parking lot on the side of the road near the gun tip.
