  • Great view once you've climbed up there, which was worth going for, but it is shut on a Monday! Not sure if that is year round but worth checking first!  more »
  • A welcome radiating on the part of the most beautiful Hag of the Côte d'Azur. I think of her charming moments in the middle of its traces of the lost time, because time is precious. There is nothing in the end and dust it will be again. Finally now we must say that medicine made sacred progress (vaccines, paracetamol,...). I've heard of people who thought possible that people could maybe possibly where it continues. I not say I don't believe in God...

  • A small museum with lots of treasures! Especially for music lovers. And the view of Cannes is wonderful (upstairs also at the top of the Tower)

  • 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.
