A 17th century house as if you lived there

An interesting visit in the old city part of Nice. Painting have been renovated and this gives the place an atmosphere very real and lively.

古いガイドブックには無料とありましたが、市内の他の美術館と共通のパスで10ユーロでした。他の美術館には興味がなかったためここだけ単独で入館したかったのですが・・・(しかも入館可能な美術館にはシャガール美術館が含まれていません)。 ともあれ、なかなか見つからないという話でしたので地図をよく見ながら訪ねるとすぐに分かりました。楽器の展示はロンドンにも似たような物があるなあと思いつつも、古い家具や調度品に囲まれた部屋は見ごたえがありました。ロンドンのウォレスコレクションをもっと古く小規模にした感じでしょうか。見学者が殆どいず静かなのはよかったです。 Contrary to what others say, it was not free of charge. I had to cough up 10 euros for 'Nice Musuem Pass' (valid for 48 hours), which, funnily enough, excludes Chagall Museum. No other choice. Anyway, the building was ancient (probably older than similar apartments in London), its contents were ancient, too. There were not many visitors (due... More

This beautifutl palace in the middle of Nice is free to visit. You may easily pass the door because it's so unnoticeable. Staircases are beautiful and rooms interesting.

We visited the palais lascaris and enjoyed the old musical instruments exhibit they have there, especially since they came from a local detonator collection. Be careful the entry is it free to local residents.

We walked by and just happened to wander in. The first thing you see is an impressive staircase and very grand rooms. Then we walked into the museum of musical instruments: A foldable violin, a harp with a keyboard, a cane that's also a flute and another one that's also a violin! Beautifully decorated harps and intricately carved violins and... More

A fascinating old building. Deep in the heart of old Nice. It's hard to imagine that back in Roman times Rue Droit was the main street in the old town. The Palais itself is steeped in history and there is much to see and admire.

I would fully endorse previous comments about the pleasure to be gained from visiting this small Museum in the old town. We found in particular the collection of musical instruments and the explanations about them quite fascinating. I had never before come across an automatic organ for teaching domestic birds new songs, nor had I seen a harp with a... More

This amazingly beautiful building, once the residence of an important noble family - Lascaris-Vintimille, now houses a lovely museum. The visitor will be delighted at the view of beautiful frescoes, sculptures, elegant furniture, Flandres and d'Aubusson tapestries, paintings, art objects and a fascinating collection of musical instruments, especially guitars, considered the second collection of this kind in France (the first...

Just visited Palais Lascaris on the off chance. It is situated behind the port in the back streets, not where you expect to find a Palace. But this Palace is a must, full of history and worth the Euros 10 entrance fee. (Once you purchase the ticket it is valid in all of the Museums of Nice), so good value... More

Hidden away in the old town is this small Palais Free to enter and an intriguing mediaeval building. When in the old town, make sure to pay a visit
