  • It's in the old castle, so of course it's on a hilltop. The climb might be unpleasant on a hot day, but the view along the Croisette alone is worth it. The collection is small, but among the most ecle...  more »
  • A not to be missed during your stay in Cannes and more specifically, during your stroll in the Suquet, historic district. A lot of wealth in this museum. L ' ethnic and Impressionist paintings, appealing every taste. Small, but really busy: worth a visit and leaving, you can admire the fabulous views of the Bay, before dining in one of the many restaurants in the typical Street St. Anthony, which gives access to the Museum.

  • 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 !
  • Despite the unprepossessing name, you have nothing to worry about gentlemen, you will not be relieved of your precious family jewels.
