Location This is a castle converted to a museum and is located on top of a small hill. It will take around 20 minutes walk from the railway station and will have to climb stairs + steep slopes. Will be a bit tiring, especially on a sunny day. Fee Entrance fees is around 6 EUR person. What's inside Well its... More

Enjoyed a terrific exhibit in the Museum, then stair-climbed to the top of the tower for the best views of Cannes and surrounds. Take your camera!

Due to time constraints we did not visit the museum itself (it is actually a castle, but it is a museum of art from around the world), but view from the museum was beautiful.

It is well worth the effort of walking up hill and numerous steps to get to the Musee de la Castre. Firstly there is a superb view of Cannes - the boats and the beach etc. But much more importantly one should go inside the museum and enjoy the exhibitions. It is small but most interesting. There is a great... More

This is the famous clock tower that can be seen from the town. Going to this place is the best thing that we did in cannes. There is a very steep road that you have to climb to reach this place. Apart from the museum, there is a church, and a breath taking view. On the day we went there... More

Top of the hill! You just keep walking up quaint alleys and stairs until you reach the museum. The collection is small but impressive. Antiquities of Egyptian art, paintings of Cannes from history, Oceanic art, Arctic tribal art and then a showing of Persian artwork. The grounds surrounding the museum offer an impressive view of the city.

I had the opportunity to view the museum with a guide speaking English. She must have been from Russian origin since some words were difficult to grasp but she was quite learned and knew to answer my questions perfectly. The place hosts a collection of artefacts brought by a 19th century wealthy traveller, baron de Licklama. You can thus easily... More

I personally haven't been here but my son has just proposed to his girlfriend here - knowing him as I do I know he would have done his research as to this location - perfect for whatever the occasion so just know it would have been perfect.

This museum is based on the trips of one of the honoured Cannes past citizen, who give its amazing collection of artifacts he bought all over the world, during the 18 century. After visiting the museum, climb the tower and profit of the most dramatic view of the city and its surroundings.
