As other reviewers have mentioned, its quite a steep hill up to the castle, but the views are worth it, as are the ethnological artefacts in the museum. I had no idea what to expect but was impressed by the smallish but interesting collection. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice collection of interesting stuff. The best part of the place was it's tower. You've got to go all the way up. The beautiful view of the entire town and Bay Area await you!

We walked up to the musee during our visit to Cannes. It is a tough walk to get to the top, lots and lots of steps! However when you make it to the Castre you are treated to superb views of Cannes and its surrounding marinas. Well worth the effort!

Interesting ethnological museum of objects brought back by explorers, but nothing about Cannes itself. Nice view from the tower, though. Worth the admission fee.

After surveying the landscape we visited the museum for an hour or so which has interesting objects from different far away islands as well as some Egyptian artefacts and local paintings. Eclectic collection was worth the visit.

A relatively small museum, but jampacked with interesting items well displayed. I went there to see an especially interesting new display of photographs of Egyptian archaeological sites taken at the dawn of photography. Not a large display, but interesting to see before they became tourist spots. There is a wonderful collection of musical instruments, old paintings of the local area... More

The viewpoint in front of the church as well as next to the church provides one with panoramic views over the city and valleys. Do continue to the top, the view is worth it. It is not a massive climb and one can wind down back to town with an alternative road and explore the historic quarter to its fullest.... More

With a leisure walk up along the Suquet old town about 10 minutes from Cannes. Special rate for group size over 10 pax. Climb up the tower for a beautiful bird eye view over pretty Cannes. Quite many world ethnical collections and paintings on display.

This museum is truly a waste of space, and the collection has absolutely nothing to do with the region. The tour has a beautiful of Cannes, but the staircase leading up to the top is really horrific and dirty.
