An interesting small museum in the old town

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... read more

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.

This is Versailles - that is for certain. It is however unexpected, tucked away in the main 'art gallery' street - rue Droite. Normally the buildings in the old town have small rooms, a muddle of rooms with narrow staircases and so on. So it is a surprise to find this frescoed interior mini-palace there. Plus there is a collection... More

This historic site's street entrance was very hard to find but it was worth a brief visit to see the medieval building and its esoteric collection of paintings and musical instruments. Nice has about ten museums and it was good to see them all to gain a richer understanding of history.

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!
