The museum is located on the top of the old city of Cannes. They exhibit ancient pagan artifacts, findings from the middle east, old Egypt, Hellenistic and more. There is an access to a tower that after climbing to its top, a wonderful panoramic view of Cannes and the area is available. Closed between 13:00-14:00 but the workers were so... More

A small cozy museum that has a little of everything. Climb the tower for the best views of Cannes! There is a range of topics within this museum and fascinating collection of old musical instruments.

This is a very cool hidden gem at the top of a hill in Cannes. At the time of writing entry was 6 EUR - this included a pretty cool museum with some interesting pieces from around the world. By far the coolest part of this museum is the tower in the courtyard which affords an unobstructed 360 degree view... More

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.

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.
