It is a great thing for Nice to have this museum open for free to the public. The palace shows how life would have been for the wealthy in those days. It also has on display a huge selection of musical instruments from different eras.

This is a very small "palace" when compared with many of the grand chateaux of France, but is an interesting building of its period. The display of antique musical instruments is fascinating and informative. Well worth a visit!

We found ourselves outside this beautiful old palace and went in to visit with no knowledge of what it contained. Well worth a visit.

We were wandering around the old town and decided to stop in here on a whim. I had glanced at the sign that said the admission was 6 Euro and stopped at the reception area to pay. The woman working there explained that it was free. They only charge for escorted tours, which are offered on Fridays at 3. The... More

came in to escape the rare torrential rain and found a interesting museum. The old palace itself was fascinating, beautiful ceilings and surprisingly several staircases open to the rain. Amazing collection of musical instruments, including pocket sized violins and exquisite 18th century pianos.

We ventured here to see the old pharmacy that is mentioned in several guide books but unfortunately this has gone now. The museum itself is in a very beautiful original building and features some old musical instruments and art. The building itself was most interesting. Free to visit. Sometimes closed between 12 and 1pm for lunch.
