Excellent museum - visitor friendly, especially if you are English speaking. We visited the top 10 attractions in NIce and this was the only museum that had sufficient English translations to make a visit really enjoyable.

This small museum is centrally located in the Old city and provides a nice cultural escape from the busy streets. You can get a combined city museum ticket for €10 for 24 hours or €20 for 7 days and this is included on the ticket....More

In addition to the usual elaborate interiors of a Palace there are many, many interesting musical instruments on display. The staff was extremely helpful and took great pride in sharing information with us.

Nice site but requires urgently a renovation. No airco, looks dirty, not maintained. Pity because it is an interesting museum.

This came as a freebie with our Contemporary Art Museum ticket. It was worth the stop! Second largest collection of musical instruments in France, impressive ceiling art, and a jump back in time with portraits and furniture.

Found this by accident wandering in the old town. If you are interested in music and history it is a must see. There are also some lovely furnishing and the building it unique in itself.

This is an interesting museum built around a stair well. As you ascend, at each level there are beautifully furnished and decorated rooms with lots of art and old things. Climbing the stairs is like going back in time to an era of fine craftsmanship...More

We purchased a 7 day pass for museums in the Nice area and this one was our favourite. The displays were beautiful and well documented in both French and English. There were so many instruments in beautiful condition. We enjoyed our visit to this museum....More
