Nice palais in the middle of the old town. It is nicely restored. A lot of music and instruments history is displayed. 10€ entry is quite expensive but you would never expect such a big house in this small streets.

Good small museum, taking you behind the walls of an aristocratic dwelling in Old Nice. Gives a great feeling for living where you could almost reach out and touch your neighbors across the narrow streets. The claustrophobic nature of the sleeping quarters emphasizes the difference between luxury today and in the past.

Palace Lascaris is a bit of a hidden gem. It is superbly decorated building containing various collections and the musical instruments are particularly fine. I have never seen so many harpsichords under one roof! The Palais also holds regular art exhibitions. Matisse was in show this year. Well worth a visit...and so easy to overlook!

From reading reviews we thought this place would be incredible so we decided to visit. How wrong we were! It was so dull with cabinets full of the same instruments (lots of guitars). Wouldn't bother paying 10 euro to go there again. It almost trumped the Checkpoint Charlie Museum as the most boring museum I had ever visited.

A tru "hidden gem" that captured the attention also of the children. We all thoroughly enjoyed the splendour of the palace itself as well as the exhibits - beautiful musical instruments.

To me it wasn't a real Palace! just a renovated old house. However, I loved the exhibition of musical instruments there.

We expected much more before we arrived there. Exhibition is worth visiting as there are many interesting and unusual instruments from different periods. But at the other side, there are no audio guides who would explain in more details those exhibitions. Staff does not speak English at all what is additional problem. Great place, but it should be much better... More

Interesting little house, now turned into a museum. It contains a variety of unusual items, mostly relating to the resident's fabulous parties and balls from the golden age of Nice. Worth a visit.

This beautiful house is hidden away on a narrow street in the Old Town. It is very simply decorated inside but the main reason for visiting is to marvel at the wonderful display of historic musical instruments. At the time we went there was also an exhibition of stage designs and costumes from 1920's parties which was also fascinating. it... More

We were unlucky enough to have a bus strike in Nice whilst on holiday and as this was our third visit we had seen most of the sights. So after a quick email to a friend who has a wealth of knowledge about this area we were advised to have a look at this little palace which we had passed... More
