From the outside totally un impressive. Go in and be surprised. Beautiful!! Wallpaintings and well preserved rooms with old furnitures, musical instruments and an old pharmacy. Look it up in rue Droite when you anyway are in the old part of Nice.

Full of artefacts, decorated ceilings and interesting, very old musical instruments. Free entry and leave your rucksack at the door (which seems to be the case for all museums we visited in Nice).

Having passed by this museum several times, I knew that the sign in front of the museum said it was open every day at 10-18h except for some holidays. The first time I wanted to visit, it was closed without explanation. Some internet sleuthing later revealed that it was closed on Tuesdays, which was not indicated on the sign. When... More

We stumbled upon this little gem by accident but i guess we should have paid more attention to the guide book! Lovey old staircases and 17th Century (?) furniture on display plus a very interesting collection of old musical instruments and a little of the history of old Nice. It is free to visit and well worth a look.

Delightful. Many smallish rooms, heavily painted walls and ceilings. Strange hinges on the doors. did they slam shut really, really hard?

This national historic building is well worth visiting. It's unique architectural style, wonderful tapestries and the impressive collection of musical instruments make it a highlight worthwhile stop. It is no-cost and in the heart of the Old Town.

This former palace, dating back to the baroque era, is located in the old city. You can't miss it since all guide books have mentioned it. When you enter the place, you are thrilled by its uncanny atmosphere. You should book an English speaking guide because the cardboards on display don't give much data about the works of art.

Perfect to excape the heat for an hour. Fantastic paintings on the walls and ceiling to marvel at, and musical instruments from across the ages to wonder at and learn about. Well sign-posted in the heart of the old town.
