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.

  • Some of the ratings say, it is worn-off, I would say, that this museum has a lovely charm - it is not brand new and modern, but shows a certain Grandezza of past times and beautiful architecture - and...  more »
  • As a Museum of fine arts a large city like Nice, touristy city, it remains somewhat on our hunger. I like art museums, and I got the chance to visit a good number in France and Europe. If it is interesting and has beautiful pieces, it is very small and can be visited in one hour taking his time! Somewhat out of the way, it is also highlighted and little frequented, what a pity! The reception was not very friendly. Fortunately as nice I did not pay the entrance of the Museum, which is too expensive otherwise (€10, for content, a shame) shame that Nice invest not more in culture! All even liked the room Jules Chéret, Niçois artist that I like, and taken pleasure in discovering the works of Mossa. If you get the chance, visit him, either for free (for the Niçois, youth, the unemployed...) or with the museum pass, because it still has beautiful works (of the Van Loo, Bonnard, Dufy,...) in a pleasant setting.

  • If you bought the local museum card you might as well pop in. The symbolist Gustav Adolf Mossa is more fun than good, but better than the rest.  more »
