  • New cultural policy in Nice €10 for the whole of the museums in the city for 48 hours or € 20 for seven days. To return to the Palace LAMPARIS beautiful type Genoese baroque palace, including above all an exceptional collections of musical instruments, for lovers! So if you buy the pass, why not take a look, especially at the entrance staircase.

  • 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.
