Truly enjoyed the experience with my two children prior to hitting the beach. The Musee gives you a fantastic insight into the architectural grandeur of the Belle Époque era and earlier. The antiquities and artwork are incredible as well. Must see while in Nice. The...More

An example of one of the huge villas built by the sea in Nice that now houses a small collection of local history items. I particularly liked two maps that showed the owners and use of the land along the Promenade des Anglais at two...More

In holiday with our daughter we wanted to see more of Nice than the beach and thought we’d do a ‘culture day’. A ticket for a wide range of museums was 10 euros for 24hrs, so we made the most of it, visiting 5 in...More

Imagine La Louvre compact into a lovely big house, the place is very sweet. The paintings and artwork inside are quaint yet fantastic. Gardens and surroundings add to the French exquisiteness and the museum itself is very beautiful. Worth €10? I wouldn't say so but...More

Having paid full price to see this museum, I thought it very bad value; a lazily put together exhibition which has not been freshened up for a long time I suspect. If you do go, bring a french dictionary unless you speak the language; all...More

The museum has scented sticks in every room - totally unnecessary. The smell made me feel unwell and gave me a headache. When I complained I was told that the scent was sold in the gift store - "business first". I'd suggest giving it a...More

This Belle Epoque villa and its garden are a peaceful oasis on the busy Promenade des Anglais. The museum entrance is 10 €, but the gardens are free to visit during the opening hours. If you decide to visit the museum, the ground floor is...More

The municipal museums of Nice are rather disappointing, and the entrance fee excessive for what's on view. Villa Massena is the best because of the opulent ground floor. The upper floor presents a social history of Nice but all the explanations are in French. Entrance...More
