  • A museum to visit both for the building for the presented collections, we learn many things.

  • This museum, which is free, is adjacent to the beautiful Phoenix Park and overlooks the great room of water with his birds. Beautiful galleries and collections on l ' art, decoration, Samurai, with a trip back in time. Everything is of incredible beauty and sleek can enjoy every step and every room. The staff is friendly. For €2 possibility to rent an audio guide. Cannes, access by bus 200 for €1.5, airport stop and 5 min walk.

  • Excellent free Museum. Museum visited by September 2017, we have discovered a very beautiful exhibition on the Samurai. The works are very beautiful, usually very old and pretty well put in value well whether lighting is just in some places. Disappointment, we couldn't see the temporary exhibition on the lower level along the reshuffle. Note the beautiful architecture of the Museum modern and light surrounded by water with its carp and turtles.

  • Super free museum, always has beautiful and interesting exhibits - and don't miss having some jasmine tea in the tea room! Recently refurbished and a beautiful water-surrounded building, worth visiting in its own right.
  • Tange building is spectacular itself, collection inside is incredible and displayed nicely. Free leaflets available at every stage allow to know more about the items. Totally free. Possibility to book tea ceremony (you have to pay for this service)
  • I didn't find museum interesting but it's for free and view from top is great
  • A hidden cultural gem in Nice.
  • The building is lovely but poorly maintained: some outdoor parts were closed when we visited and numerous doors were broken. Although it might seem churlish to complain about a free museum, I have to say that the permanent collection is very small and of very little interest. We got a bus from the centre of Nice to visit this place: my advice would be to get the TGV to Paris instead, and visit the Guimet museum (which is fabulous).
