  • A little gem in the middle of nowhere :) really worth a visit, everything is in English and French including many touch screens. Stunning building inside. You can go in and out as many times as you like during the day.
  • Excellent and well organized collection. A real gem in Mougins!
  • An unbelievable collection. A real gem of a museum that displays its pieces in a refreshing manner, placing contemporary artist alongside the classics. Definitely a must-visit place.
  • The South of France is littered with great museums, and I've visited a lot of them in 2013. But of them all the Musée d'Art Classique is the sole to give you a morning-sized visit of such eclecticism and excellence. You want Greek, Roman or Egyptian antiquities? It has them. Old Masters? By the yard. Art by the twentieth century greats associated with the region? Yup, those too. Cutting edge contemporary? Plenty of that as well. Which could make it sound superficial. It isn't. There is an intellectual underpinning to the museum layout that becomes apparent as you wander past art of different eras that is juxtaposed in an imaginative and attractive manner. Think a rich stock of the British Museum and Tate Modern reduced, intensified and served under the sun of the south of France. Indispensable.
  • A beautiful diving in antiquity. ... Contemporary and antique objects exposed together, sometimes face to face: original and well come! A visit with the family, everyone will find his account...
