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.

This museum holds a mishmash of articles from different historical periods, with a small description of some of them. I know they were grouped, but there didn't seem to be any flow to this museum. The view from the tower is stunning, and you can see most of Cannes. On the plus side - if you are 25 or under,... More

The museum itself is quite small, with some medieval artifacts on display including caskets of probably a knight or the lord of the castle. You can finish the museum in less than an hour, afterwhich... More

The view from the citadel tower is really great. However, the museum is forgettable and has very little by way of regional history. The "employees" are basically teenagers paid to sit in chairs and smirk at the tourists all day.

Breathtaking views of Cannes - situated just above the Old Town - its definitely worth the trouble to get a different perspective of the place. Unfortunately the museum itself was closed when I got there.
