If you're into sightseeing or photography then the 7€ admission might be worth it just to get to the top of the castle for the 360 view of Cannes. Stopped here while in port for a cruise and was able to get great aerial photos of the marina and cruise ship. As for the museum itself, it's not a museum... More

Supposed to visit the museum but instead of going inside we ended up just chilling outside the museum. The view from the top was just mesmerising. We just took in the beauty of Cannes from up above. Walking up the staircase was a delight cos the houses that you would walked past were all incredible. It was such a good... More

A pleasant walk in the old part of the city which we preferred to the hustle and bustle of the main area. The castle contains some interesting artefacts and great paintings. I especially liked the ones of how Cannes looked in its early days. There were information boards in different languages and the entrance fee was fine. Fantastic views from... More

The museum holds some very unique pieces of tribal culture from around the world. There are some nice paintings as well depicting Cannes coast during the 1800s. But the highlight of the museum tour is the Panorama view from the watch tower. It gives a very clear and breathtaking view. On a clear day you could may be see as... More

Uphill climb to the museum but it is doable. Admission was free if you have a student ID, Staff was friendly and spoke enough english to be helpful. The artifacts contained in this museum are extremely interesting, mostly Ancient Roman artifacts from the 1st Century AD.

Musee de la Castre is a history and art museum in Cannes. It has various and changing expositions from European paintings to Eastern and African art and in this sense it is not unique. What I found more interesting was a tower in the museum's inner yard (steep climb!) which offered an amazing 360 degree view of Cannes. So even... More

Nice little museum for 6 Euro. Not busy so you can take your time and enjoy the paintings and a variety of other small exhibits, including an Egyptian, Persian and South Pacific collection. All-in-all, quite an interesting variety. Many of the exhibits have information translated into several languages, including English. If you plan to visit, go on a sunny day... More
