  • In this cold December Sunday, we decided to go hang out at the Museum of the photography André Villers of Mougins, open on weekends. Nice retrospective of Picasso photos, at work or in their daily lives. A Museum in height, on several floors, which allows also to contemplate the works of several artists, on different times, and allowing the escape. A beautiful moment. A few storefronts where enthroned of magnificent cameras former, photographs hanging on the walls - spotless - giving to dream... This museum is a gem! Beautiful and rich idea to be able to give the public (free) access to culture and to the work of a few photographers worldwide. To see and review without moderation! Open everyday from 10:00 to 12 h 30 and from 14:00 to 19:00.
