  • Nice surprise to discover this nice Museum on 4 floors. Very nice association of Antiquities and paintings by masters.

  • Probably one of the best museums I've visited. Small but amazing Museum staged doing live Roman works with paintings and sculptures of contemporary artists: picasso, chagall etc. 2 levels and basement are served by a hydraulic glass elevator. A unique collection in the world of Roman and Greek helmets in perfect condition almost full armour ansi! In short everything would be perfect if the temperature was too low! As a result I could not focus as I would have liked for fear of catching pneumonia. Should be provided in thick wool coats at the entrance!

  • In the Green Michelin Guide has this museum friendly text and 1 star. but we were both very impressed. What a wonderful objects, how diverse, how tastefully apparently collected in relatively short time, how exciting the modern pieces that here among the classics. Great. You must of course be of Egyptian and Greek/Roman art and have some knowledge of, but if that is the case, you can really enjoy. Everything beautiful bilingual besides. highly recommended

  • 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.
  • Very educational very playful Museum and who has a collection worthy of some major cultural venues. Friendly and warm welcome. Absolutely worth a visit during a visit to Mougins
