  • Palais Lascaris was free with Rivera pass. I am not sure if I was paying full price if it was worth price. If you like musical instruments I would say yes. 
  • For a long time that I was coming to the Lascaris Palace and yet I often spent under its windows. Finally a rainy day there took back me the very rich collection of musical instruments is a delight, with unexpected discoveries and the atmosphere of the apartments an invitation to daydreaming a storm invited himself, made even more amazing the visit then if you lose in the old Nice and arrive in front of the Lascaris Palace check it out.

  • 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.
  • Stunning building to just simply walk by.
  • Small place of history
  • A little boring. focused on collection of vintage musical instruments.
