  • Wonderful view of the city. It’s located in the old town and it has a great walk up and down with beautiful old buildings.
  • Very impressive museum for a relatively small town. A good exhibition of Oceanic/Polynesian items and a very impressive exhibit of a variety of musical instruments.
  • After Louvre and much better museums this can barely compare. This 6 Euros per person mish mash of times, places and traditions with low grade exibition items did not keep my attention long. Signs for entrance on 28th Nov 18 confused other potential visitors who left before reopenning at 2pm.
  • Providing you can make the walk up many winding hilly paths, you'll find a quaint little museum offering a range of different displays and exhibits. Also offers a stunning view of the city.
  • Fantastic little museum with a low entry fee and the opportunity to climb the Chateau tower for the absolute best view across Cannes. Worth it just for that!
