Nice selection of artefacts ranging from across the world and also the ticket includes being able to go up the tower and the view over Cannes is to die for.

The Island itself is beautiful. The museum is quite interesting .Worth visiting. The murals on the walls are stunning. Enjoyed the trip. Would recommend this.

A very small collection of artifacts, largely from the sea bottom, reminders of the ancient world of sea trade. The collection is not outstanding but shouldn't be missed if you have made your visit to the cell of the Man in the Iron Mask.

Another museum not worthy it's name... Their permanent collection is a waste of time, but they sometimes hold modern art exhibitions that may be interesting.

This museum houses ancient roman artifacts from the 1st century AD which was very cool to see. The price of admission is free if you have a student ID. This is also where the Prison museum is located. We enjoyed our visit!
