really worth a visit. It does not take a long time to visit it and to me it is a must. Bonus: free entry

If you like historic musical instruments, this might be a place you would enjoy. However, if you enjoy decorative arts, do not visit here. The ceilings and carvings are crudely done and it is not in good condition. It is interesting to see what a townhouse looked like in old Nice but not worth getting here and taking time, even... More

This was well worth seeing. An exceptionally fine palais housing a magnificent collection of musical interests. Of far more interest to the general public than that description would suggest. Keep an eye out for quirky objects like the walking cane that contains a miniature violin.

The Palais itself could use a little touch up but go any , the history is great stuff and where else will you learn about a Prince of Malta and Gozo! The history and instruments are well worth the visit and it is free

Not easy to find in the maze of the old town but worth looking for. Beautiful building and interesting exhibits of musical instruments. free to go in which is a bonus and lovely and cool for an hour out of the hot sun.

This was a little gem of a museum in the dark, narrow streets of Vieille Nice. It is free and offers the chance to marvel at, in particular, old musical instruments of which there are many and various. There are also fine paintings and ceiling art in several rooms. The visit won't take long so it won't tax you with... More

Located in a narrow street in the old town; very difficult to find. On the other hand, on the street of the museum there are several very nice art galeries. Worth seeing them.

Good exhibitions with paintings and furnitures in this beautiful palace. And free of charge. But make sure to open your eyes to find it seen that it is located on a pedestrian lane. We passed twice along the palace without recognizing it!

Hard place to locate and can easy be missed. Only took us about 20 mins to walk around the building but was't really our cup of tea.
