Massena Museum, Nice
Categories: Art Museums, Museums
The neoclassical Italianate architecture of Massena Museum was inspired by the Rothschild villa in Cannes. A very skillful restoration of the historic gardens was conducted in 2006-2007, which restored the original luster of the aristocratic mansion. The villa is surrounded by a courtyard, a French garden, and a great lawn. Wander past remarkable plants, such as the Magnolia grandiflora, Araucaria excelsa, Melaleuca, and Brachychiton populneum.

It is not a museum competung with some high level museums in the city, but if you are nearby, it worth visiting.

Josephine's tiara, Napoleon's vest and death-mask, exhibits on Nice history and Garibaldi (born here). Well worth the visit.

Beautiful building housing a number of Nice related historical objects, posters, and paintings. All signage is in French. All paintings in the building are portraiture but there are a few cool historic nuveau style posters to see upstairs. Would not recommend visiting with children - lack of any interactive or activity based exhibits. Expensive for what it is, save this for a rainy day if you have already seen the modern art museum, the Chagal museum, the Matisse museum, Mt Boron, the harbor, castle Hill, and everything else in Nice.
Fascinating museum, pretty cheap (at least for students) , it tells the history of nice with paintings, artifacts, videos and photos. For me , a must for a trip in Nice
Straightforward. Very nice for what it is but a little small.
Interesting place to visit with nice atmosphere and presentation. Spent an enjoyable hour looking around. Sits in a nicely maintained garden. The only negative aspect is that all the information is in French.
Very nice museum, in front of the beach with a very huge exhibition (photographs, books and various objects) of the history of the city
