  • Naïve art is just naïve in its realization, otherwise it is very rich in color and shape. Photo forbidden inside.

  • Another nice specialty: the scam at the Museum. The city gargles with 20 free museums for the Niçois and paying for others. 10 euros entrance, this is often expensive for what it is and you have any interest in trying to cushion the prices by visiting several museums during 24 hours of validity of the ticket. To have almost all visited, we politely tell their interest varies. It is not easy to reach on foot. After 30 minutes of struggling, we come across a piece of paper hanging from the grid announcing the exceptional closure from 12:30 to 13:30. It's 12:15. No information on the site or the answering machine. We will not...

  • Took a cab to get to the museum. Arrived 1215 to be met by a grumpy old goat of a receptionist. She directed me and my wife to leave our bags outside of the building on the floor explaining it was for...  more »

  • This is a lovely little art museum off the beaten track, located in an old chateau. The property itself is lovely, including the front garden, building and the walk up to the museum itself. We had the museum all to ourself, which was amazing - although it was off season. Don't miss this one if you have the time after the other museum's. The art is just as inspiring and unique.
  • If you like naïf art, then this museum is definitely worth visiting, even though it is fairly small. It might be confusing to enter, as the front gate you need to drive through is locked (as a result of vigipirate). You have to press a buzzer and ask the person to open it, allowing you to drive in an park (parking is free). The only negative aspect is that the people working there are not very friendly or helpful (for whatever reason, most people working at Nice museums are like this). The entrance fee is 10 euros (free if you are a resident). The gift shop is almost non-existant, and there is no cafe in at the museum, or in the immediate vicinity.
  • A bit off the beaten track but definitely worth the time. SOme beautiful art in a lovely old home. Uncrowded and delightful. Go there!
  • It's a museum, very interesting.
  • Very nice, both by its quality content, as the architecture of its building and the beauty of his garden. It is a Museum, quiet and in a privileged space, green and bright. Works of art are also arranged in gardens around the building. It's very nice of y Flanner, even without going in the building (and free) only downside, the Museum is very small and quite expensive...
