  • The Palais Lascaris in the old Nice is a Baroque building, it is relatively small, the Interior is richly decorated, ceiling paintings, statues, busts, paintings, small baroque chapel, and especially a wide range of musical instrument former, short but interesting visit.

  • The Palais Lascaris is unknown but it is very interesting both architecturally than for its collection. Little gem of Baroque art, there are frescoes and antique furniture as well as a large collection of musical instruments of the time Italian Baroque

  • 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.
