We nearly didn't bother with this but we are so glad that we did. This is a little gem of a museum/palais. It looks like nothing at street level but opens up as you get higher inside. It gives a fascinating insight into the parties of Nice and also has an amazing collection of musical instruments. Don't miss it!

We were in Nice for our honeymoon in July 2015 and we came to this little museum (special offer 20 Euros for entry into 15 or so local museums, including this one). There was an interesting exhibition about a married couple in the 1920s who threw fabulous cultural immersive parties with dancers, music, decorations, costumes, but sadly the man died... More

This is a fascinating building, and the eighteenth-century rooms are excellent. There is also a really great collection of musical instruments which we really enjoyed exploring. There is also a really interesting temporary exhibition on that is worth seeing if you are interesting in 1920s artistic culture. We visited this using a museum pass which gave us access to a...

Jewel in heart of old Nice. Amazing painted ceilings and carpets on the walls! An interesting collection of stringed instruments and many old harps. Some wind and a few brass instruments also. Makes a refreshing break from the busy streets! Well worth a visit if you are musically inclined!

This is a beautiful, little residence with lovely antique paintings and furnishings inside. The place is very small though, and the atmosphere quite dead. This would be much better appreciated or meaningful with a guide or listening devices in different languages to narrate each of the room's contents. The visits are free with a French Riviera Pass so it is... More

We had bought the museum tickets that allowed us to go to a variety of museums within a 7 day period, so since this museum was less than 100 metres from where we were staying it was a case of "why not?" It turned out to be an interesting small museum - a 17th C building with many intact features... More

Well compared to other attractions the place is a little small and the lightening kinda makes the whole place looks dim....Would prefer to have more rooms preserved...

Hotel Ruhl was in the begiunning of last century the place to go for exotic parties. This story is told at Palais Lascaris this summer (2015). It is an interesting story and the Palais with its collection of rare musical instruments is in itself worth a visit.
