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.

Just on the Promenade des anglais, you can have a walk and visit the "Palais". Very interesting, you will discover the History of France and for the French Riviera.

This is not expected in the old nice, that behind such walls in narrow street can be found such example of outstanding refinement in architecture and arts. The ceiling height beautifully decorated are similar to any palace and all the home represent well the refinement of such aristocratic family. Now a museum it was free and we enjoy visiting it....

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.
