  • We got into the Museum through the garden, where there is the largest collection of citrus in Europe. More than 100 varieties of citrus-lemons, oranges, clementines, mandarainy. Lots of interesting sculptures, installations and more than 70 is the perfect place for relaxation, pure and cool in the summer heat, people ... Before the Palace belonged to the Princes of the Principality of Monaco and was the summer residence, now a museum with an excellent collection of Italian artists of the 12-13 century and Flemish painting here is a large collection of Oriental art, George Bagulesku, which he bequeathed to the city after death. mandatory place to visit in Menton.

  • The palace looks impressive from the outside but is currently closed for renovation works. Check before you go. The gardens are interesting but unless you are close by they are probably not worth the ...  more »
  • Close to the seafront, beautiful walk in the Park and very interesting tour of the Palace with quite rich collections.

  • I loved this place even though this is not usually my favorite type of art.
  • Very nice and cute, plus beautiful gardens
  • Beautiful historic building, and the collection is interesting with a few contemporary shows. Unfortunately it is rather neglected. There is no communication on what is happening or the expos, not d info or posters. He deserves to work and a willingness to give him a real place in the cultural life of the region

  • Attention if you are going to visit the Museum, the internet site of the town of Menton is not up-to-date! Closed on Sunday 25 June but must go there to find out. See link "contact us" on the site, fear of returns?
