Art Museum Museum
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.

  • 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
  • Interesting museum. Worth visit.
  • Beautiful building, somewhat shabby. Beautiful painting in general except Raoul Dufy because I don't like contemporary art, in general.
