Wonderful museum in a charming town. The Greek and Roman artifacts are displayed beautifully and the display makes it easy to appreciate the pieces. A nice amalgam of antiquities to modern art. From a 700 BC helmet to Andy Warhol. A bargain admission price and air conditioning!

Very interesting to join the ancientwith the modern. Especially enjoyed the Roman jewellery, amazing quality and interested to see that we are still influenced by this even today. Although small, easy to navigate worth a visit in beautiful Mougins

Near the main way into this ancient village, the newly refurbished building crams in an eclectic mix of exhibits, building links across the millennia - from ancient Egypt and classical Greece, to Marc Chagall and Damien Hirst. A refreshing change from the usual organisation of museums and galleries by era, and one which in this relatively small space seems to... More

Mougins Museum of Classical Art is different from all other art museums I've visited. It's unique in its presentation style: ancient works of art stand side by side with modern art pieces. Sometimes it's not easy to distinguish between the two! You may or may not like it but it's certainly well presented with lighting and overall cool modern museum... More

Not to be missed by art and history interested. Coupling of antiquities and contemporary art, through the intermingling of a very discerning collector's exquisite taste and curator's exceptional choreography.

The Musée d’Art Classique de Mougins is possibly the most fascinating museum I have ever visited and I would suggest that it is a “must” for anyone who is within 100 kilometers of Mougins. Opened in 2011 and named the European Museum of the Year in 2013, the MACM “highlights the dialogue between the old and the new” with ancient... More

This brand new museum opened in 2011 and gives you the opportunity to admire Roman , Greek or Egyptian antiques as well as modern painting from Picasso or Matisse. It's absolutely wonderful. Modern and at the same time a breathtaking view from every window.

This tiny museum is a 'must see' for anyone interested in art - ancient and modern. The collection is wonderful. I really enjoyed the Greek and Roman sculptures. However, the exhibits that left me 'open mouthed' with astonishment were the ancient arms and armour on the top floor. A fully inclusive chronology of Greek and Italian armour from the seventh...

Fantastic place. A bit of Louvre relocated to Mougins. A rich British broker and art collector has made his collection available to the general public. Classic art intermixed with some modern pieces. Egyptian, Roman, Greek art presented in a welcoming atmosphere. A real gem. Not to be missed!!
