NOT FOR FAMILIES! The museum doesn’t allow prams inside and they ask you to keep it OUTSIDE, unguarded and with no assurance of safekeeping.

The views were fantastic, the museum buildings themselves are well preserved and fun to visit. The museum was quaint, although some of it was being renovated while we visited, so we did not get to...

Located at the top of Le Suqeut with great views, the Musee Des Explorations Du Monde has rotating exhibits. The grounds are quite pretty as well.

Great view of the city can see the harbour and the Casino and shopping strip, The Cannes sign is up here also. There is a walk way which is step free all the way but can be steep in places. Museum closes fairly early at 5 so get there early.
Mixed exhibition. You can climb the tower. Toilets by the tower yard.
Amazing view from the tower. Lovely collection and friendly staff of the museum. Highly recommended
The ascent to the former castle, from which not much remains, is already worthwhile for the view of Cannes. I didn't visit the museum itself, but I enjoyed walking up here and relaxing. Besides remains of walls and towers, there is a crenellated wall of the castle in front of the church.
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.
