  • 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 »

  • 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.

Where to stay in Nice
