French culinary history comes alive at Musee Escoffier de l'Art Culinaire, located inside the former home of famed chef and writer Georges Auguste Escoffier. A place of pilgrimage for impassioned foodies from around the globe, the museum pays homage to a legendary figure who many consider the founding father of modern French cuisine. Called the "king of chefs and chef of kings" by French journalists, Escoffier simplified and modernized numerous elaborate preexisting recipes in addition to inventing many of his own. The museum preserves several of the chef's menus and photographs, and highlights the methods he used to introduce organized discipline into professional kitchens.

  • This museum is really nice. There is a space with beautiful chocolate statues. There is air conditioner inside. The workers are friendly. We liked it. They even have a game and a space for kids. We visited this place 3 weeks ago. There is a free parking near, and you can access the museum easily by walking. The city is well decorated☂️Very peaceful places. At the end of the visit you will be given a free special ice cream. There is an outside space, with tables and chairs to eat your ice cream🍧A must to visit😊
  • Wonderful small museum with some unexpected angles of chief’s life and nice place for children
  • Charming! The staff were lovely and so welcoming. The little treat at the end of our visit was such a "sweet" touch. 🍨😋
  • It's nice, but kind of old fashioned, a bit "dusty"... I could imagine more life...
  • The visit to the Musée Escoffier de l’Art Culinaire @Villeneuve Loubet was very exciting. Got a chance to learn the about our Chef Ambassador who brought credit to our profession and also gave us direction and inspired our thoughts to create, prepare and touch peoples heart through our food.
