    This museum has no large amount of works, without however, the beauty of which has made it an indispensable place for all lovers of oriental art. In addition, the building is beautiful, semirodeado by a sort of pond and the lighting is perfect for the beauty of the works

    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)

    A hidden cultural gem in Nice.

    I didn't find museum interesting but it's for free and view from top is great

    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).
