  • This afternoon, we decided to visit the Matisse Museum and Museum of Nice-Cimiez, the place is very beautiful, relaxing in the Park of the arenas, the indoor Museum is interesting, not very big, but informative, some statues, Roman objects, columns, sarcophagi, Gladiator helmets, outside is a must-see, old stones, columns, arches, vaults, aisles, in the middle of lawns without being extraordinary, it is worth the trip to spend a relaxing time and history

  • If you're English, it's all in French with no English guides. It's very small, and not too interesting. However i out back, there's the old ruins and this rescues the visit.
  • Nice.
  • Very interesting for children as for adults. For the children of the workshops "excavation and reconstruction of archaeological objects that have fascinated them. It is true that for the visit of the outdoor site tour would be significant.

  • Very nice site to visit, unfortunately we not were accompanied and it's a shame because we had to miss some details or anecdotes. A little effort on the showroom of object that smells musty.

  • As two young students of 17 years, it was impossible to visit the Museum as we were unaccompanied minors. I find it unacceptable to prevent young people to cultivate a minimum or prevent them from understanding or interested in the history of their region. I have even more difficult to understand that we have an obligation to be accompanied by an adult to be able to visit a Museum at 17.
