  • The house was uninviting from the street but inside was impressive with some lavishly decorated rooms. The display of musical instruments was fascinating to us. It was well worth visiting as it was in...  more »
  • This aristocratic mansion is a baroque masterpiece. The atmosphere is very special, we plunge into the atmosphere of the Lascaris-Ventimiglia family. The collection of musical instruments is impressive and very interesting. The Palace is located in the old town.

  • Nothing special...it is good if you are interested in ancient musical instruments
  • It looks good, great place to visit. Very old , built in 17th century.
  • Great little museum/property with some fantastic preserved interior design - not very extensive collection but entry includes 9 other Nice attractions so I think it was a good length of time spent
  • Very interesting old palace in Nice. Largely decorated in the baroque style it is a beautiful example of a noble's home in the south of France. It does show the results of restoration, but it seems to be well done and authentic. It can be visited using the Museums of Nice Pass. Will appeal mostly to fans of baroque musical instruments and architecture.
  • Exceptional experience!
