  • Along a didactic course and location of the discovery of the prehistoric site developed by our "ancestors" 400000 years ago. The casts on the ground, cut stones, bone remains of wildlife, the hut, everything leads us from excavations in the reenactments. Magnificent.

  • The Museum is located to the port. Direction Villefranche at sea at the beginning of the Bd Carnot. I don't know what public transit take with work at the port. It is almost impossible to Park to this museum. It is a small museum which was built on the premises of discoveries. It is a ground - to - floor of a large building. It is well presented, but with very little. It may interest an enthusiast of prehistory. It has been redesigned in 2016. We flow easily, there are clear explanations on each object. The entrance fee is € 10 valid day in all municipal and free museums for the people having the Pass (established for free in any Museum) of the metropolis of Nice Côte d'Azur. Recommend possibly including for children, there are skulls of human and other objects of interest if they like prehistoric times. Need to explain from the notes on the different products. But it can be disappointing, despite the efforts made by the friendly staff. So recommended possible visit.

  • We visited the Roman Baths (worth it, btw!) and decided to give this museum a try (price was included in our other ticket). We spent about 20 minutes there - I'm not sure how you could spend much more...  more »

  • Its the real deal if you're into paleontology / archaeology. I enjoyed the visit. Tickets are free to Nice residents. To see some more of the prehistory of Nice you might also want to visit the Grotto de Lazaret, located near Plage de Coco Beach.
  • Small but well constructed museum offering a unique insight into an early temporary settlement on the shores of nice.
  • It could be much better for sure. As there is no much potential for improvement a fair ticket price should be between EUR2 for kids and EUR5 for adults. Overall, Nice city's new (2015) pricing policy for all of its museums is not fair and it has to be reviewed. There might be a significant loss from EU's subsidies, but each museum should be evaluated separately. The cost of EUR10 doesn't correspond to 1 min walk throughout the Terra Amata museum. I did visit it because of its significance, but for that price I really should have visited any other museums instead. I hope to see some development in the city's pricing policy, as its really a pity.
  • Completely redone Museum. Accessible and lively pedagogy at the service of this site that delivered the older home built of humanity. To see or review for a nice time with your family.
