  • Located next to the Church of our Lady of hope, this totally unlikely Museum will propel you to the other side of the world. Leg of a rich and cultured collector, this is a trip in the 5 continents: primitive, popular arts, but also collections of objects from the Mediterranean and Mesopotamia. This museum is surprisingly little known while he deserves a long pause in your walk to the old town. Take the height at any point of view, the panorama of his Watchtower is sublime.

  • In the walls of the ancient city of Cannes, the Suquet, in the old Castle, a small museum, not too big, but worth a visit; very interesting, the life of the Castle and its history.

  • 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.
