Beautiful place set up quite nicely. It is a house that is still traditionally decorated and worth a visit. I didn't even know some of the instruments housed here even existed. It's always nice to learn about something new!

It's for the first time that i found out that it's possible to visit this Palais! It was quite useful to feel the atmosphere of the Old Nice!

I have never been so bored in my life. My friends convinced us it would be a nice afternoon. I can only stand looking at dusty old musical interments so long before I no longer am interested, Its a nice palace but lacks the grandeur of say the Palace in Monaco or even Madrid. I would not go again. Im... More

Beautiful furnished old palace, belonging to one of the most important noble families of Nice. The stairs are wonderfully decorated and the rooms have original furniture.

One of France's great collections of Musical instruments going back over several centuries. Spread out over several floors you can wander through the many displays of antique instruments. I was absolutely amazed at the different varieties of string instruments. You could imagine the thoughts of the creator as they invented these highly diverse instruments in an attempt to create a...

It is absolutely worth a visit. Many exciting ancient classical musical instruments. The house is worth seeing beautiful both inside and out.

Possibly the only place in Nice where you can begin to imagine what it was like at the turn of the last century. A very obscure entrance hides a delightful step back in time.

This was so very enjoyable! Located smack in the middle of buildings on Rue Droite we walked by it twice before entering.The highlight of this 'museum' being the huge collection of antique musical nstruments. Some the like, we never knew existed. Well done.

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
