The building entry is quite something. If that is all you want to see then go no further because you cannot take pictures beyond that point. Talk about 1%ers of yesteryears having bold taste. I really enjoyed seening the old instruments. It might be a bit overpriced for the time we spent but i would do it again just because... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the Palais. It is a small collection but ranges from portraits to tapestries to musical instruments. The architecture of the building itself is stunning. My only gripe is the fact the entry is 10 euros which is a bit steep given the fact there is limited information in english and it is only a... More

Beautiful chic luxury! And many of these epithets characterize this palace! Nice - a resort for people who lead a rich life of luxury. Palace delicious. Take the time to get away from the beach and inspect it, will not regret!

It is a great thing for Nice to have this museum open for free to the public. The palace shows how life would have been for the wealthy in those days. It also has on display a huge selection of musical instruments from different eras.

This is a very small "palace" when compared with many of the grand chateaux of France, but is an interesting building of its period. The display of antique musical instruments is fascinating and informative. Well worth a visit!

We found ourselves outside this beautiful old palace and went in to visit with no knowledge of what it contained. Well worth a visit.

We were wandering around the old town and decided to stop in here on a whim. I had glanced at the sign that said the admission was 6 Euro and stopped at the reception area to pay. The woman working there explained that it was free. They only charge for escorted tours, which are offered on Fridays at 3. The... More
