Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nice, Nice

3.4
#9 of 27 in Museums in Nice
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.

  • A stunning but rather tired building with an interesting mix of works including sculptures by Rodin and others of classic Greek style including the 3 graces. Not to be missed as an important part of t...  more »
  • Beautiful building 19 eme century. Interesting exhibition well only a little Motley. A lot of paintings on loan from the Louvre in the long term. Superb Chinese roller of the 17 th century of 16 m in length; a story of the descent of the Yellow River with the Emperor of the time. Unlike what I saw to be written, it is not so difficult to park in the vicinity; There is a parking lot below the Museum, free, accessible by street Auguste Renoir. Otherwise possibility in the Baumettes avenue.

  • Very nice museum in a beautiful old villa. No information once you are in there as to the layout or facilities which is a lost opportunity.
  • Very grand building in the western part of the city. Spacious galleries with an emphasis on lesser known artists who painted and lived on the Cote D'Azure. Sometimes there are free concerts in the gardens in the evening. Get there early to get a seat as they restrict admission numbers. What could be better than listening to great classical music at twilight in the open air on a warm summer evening?
  • Tucked away with a good view. Exhibits are varied from statues to paintings to pottery
  • Nice museum to visit, but beware that there's no audioguides, and the information of the pieces are only in French. Besides, it's a rather small museum, which took 45 minutes to be completed, even after stopping in 95% of the pieces. Finally, there's a lack of work made by famous artists. Only a few Picasso sculptures. The highlight is the Van Loo dynasty room, with huge pieces.
  • Review is based on the fact that we did not get to see any of the exhibited art since our baby girl was not in a good mood. We asked if we could return the ticket or get back another day. The staff was not accommodating at all.
