  • For art lovers, this museum is awesome! The children loved going there, there are also activities for children. Top!

  • I knew very little of Bonnard before I went, but it is worth taking the slight detour out of Cannes- buses run from the centre every 10 minutes. So much better than the crowded touristy galleries in N...  more »
  • Several paintings by Bonnard are beautiful and worth the visit alone. We regret not having one or two extra floors. The temporary exhibition dedicated to Pierre Lesieur lack either of interest (even if its production is more uneven).

  • Small, intimate and well setup museum dedicated to a single artist, Pierre Bombard. You will not get "museum fatigue" from it and you will learn a great deal about Bombard, a prolific painter whose style evolved greatly over 60 years. The Museum store offers clever and imaginative Bonnard souvenirs. In addition the Museum puts out a brochure "On the steps of Bonnard/Sur les pas de Bonnard" which takes you on a walking tour of Le Cannet. The stops are the locations in Le Cannet painted by Bonnard. His paintings of that location are displayed on a pedestal.
  • I had the opportunity to be here in the inauguration and a few times afterwards - here you have a really easy access with a wheelchair and opposite, on the other side of the road you have a really nice place for lunch or a cup of coffee / handmade chocolate.... Andre
  • What a horrible experience! The museum is small, dark, with very few paintings. You will have to circle for an hour to find parking... And the worse is the security guard at the entrance who was rude, unprofessional and insulting! He made horrible comments about my wife who didn't speak English and started an argument. Of course, the staff watched but didn't say a thing. Mediocrity at its worse.
  • A small selection of Bonnard's work in the permanent collection. The building and display is great for both permanent and temporary exhibitions. Really lucky seeing an exhibition in cats and dogs in Bonnard's work this summer (2016). Shame for the bad experience of a bully security guard and a distracted receptionist spending her time on te phone rather than making sure visitors are all right....
  • Very warm welcome. Very interesting exhibitions. User-friendly workshop for children
