  • Visit of an hour for 10 euros per person. Interesting and fun information on posters. Namely: This ticket you buy for this museum also allows you access to 10 other museums in Nice for 48 h. You have the option 7 days also for lovers of culture. This former private nice Palace houses a huge collection of musical instruments. Indeed, he gets the second place at the European level. You find an authentic remains of the South with a pictorial decoration of the walls leading to the different room. The typical attributes of these palaces are well highlighted here. Skylights overlooking both those markets and parts. Really a place to discover.

  • a fantastic collection of music in a beautiful Palace, which is so much more spectacular from the inside and out.

  • was addressed immediately on my arrival from a very outrageous Museum guard stupid, what I do allow me to emerge with backpack. I was not made aware but at the box office, and there was also no lockers so I "could" stow my backpack in a corner. Among the exhibits: Unusual musical instruments which, perhaps, are likely to be interested in a relevant audience. Otherwise, tapestries and an alcove, really, there's not much here. To discourage! There are better things to do!

  • 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.
  • You could almost walk by this and not see it. Firstly it's very (very) small. However it's gorgeous. The artwork of the ceilings are what you will probably remember the most. Well worth a visit, albeit a short one.
  • A bit overpriced. It's a museum of musical instruments, so it's a little disappointing that all you do is look at them. That said, they have some real rarities and instruments unlike anything you've ever seen. Small museum.
  • Lovely museum.
  • Built in 17th century.
