View the work of some of Europe's lesser-known artists at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nice. The museum is often called Jules Cheret because of its large collection by this painter and poster artist. The museum was built inside an unfinished building from 1821. Prince Lev Viktorovich Kotchoubeï started but never completed the structure. In 1925, the city if Nice bought it to house this fine arts museum, which was made possible largely in part to donations from several French royal families.

  • Fine arts Jules Cheret Museum is in an old villa turned into a museum. This museum is unfortunately not maintained. It offers yet of many paintings and sculptures of high quality. We went there several times because this place is worth a visit, the building by him is to be discovered. It is surrounded by a small park. A visit to advised as a couple, with family or friends. Mayor of nice offers a card to the people of Nice which allows you to visit all the museums in the city for free.

  • Apart from a few works of Rodin, and a few decent painings, it was a stangely scarce collection. Hardy worth €10 in admittance.  more »
  • We visited the Chéret Museum several times and always with pleasure as this inspiration Italian Renaissance villa is beautiful. With its large rooms, a magnificent patio, a beautiful ceiling height, and few people to contemplate the collections. But soon we feel feel to visit a beautiful home sleeping because some rare works have been incorporated into the permanent collection of the Museum. So the feeling that the temporary exhibitions are rare in this place sentenced to no longer seduce its visitors. If you come to hang out, it's perfect, if return for new discoveries, there will be ironed, but when? What a shame, such a Palace!

  • Easy to get to. Galleries are well organised, with a variety of paintings and sculptures. Lovely building. 2 floors. Free ticket to residents of the Nice area.
  • Loved it! It is quiet. No tourist. Also there is a cat roaming around
  • Interesting enough art, but not much information on it - limited info was only in French. €10 per person, a little pricey. Website is awful
  • I liked the original design of building. Sad that there's not much left of original furniture
  • Lovely building
