  • An interesting small museum, where even children are included. An exhibition of artefacts from all over the world and from different eras. You should drop by, if moves in the Center.

  • Nice place to have a full aerial view of cannes. Students below 26 have discount in ticket price.
  • Small but diverse and high quality antiques collection. Not your usual mediaeval or castle museum.
  • The museum is nice, but the view that you can enjoy from there is absolutely astonishing. Even if you don't want to visit this museum, I would recommend climbing to it. You won't regret it. Amazing spot for taking pictures.
  • Beautiful place to take photos. Worth the short hike our use the local bus which costs €2
  • Needs more integrated interpretation with contemporary local ethnography.
