This was a little gem of a museum in the dark, narrow streets of Vieille Nice. It is free and offers the chance to marvel at, in particular, old musical instruments of which there are many and various. There are also fine paintings and ceiling art in several rooms. The visit won't take long so it won't tax you with... More

Located in a narrow street in the old town; very difficult to find. On the other hand, on the street of the museum there are several very nice art galeries. Worth seeing them.

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.
