I found this small museum to be enchanting. The building is beautiful and, once inside, I even enjoyed the views out the windows overlooking gardens and the sea in the distance. Being from New York where large and heavily populated museums are the norm, I...More

I was a bit disappointed because I did expect something more. There are 2 floors in this museum so you can easily visit it in an hour. It is a collection of many styles includes posters and modern art. I would skip this museum unless...More

This may not be one of Nice’s top attractions, but I love this museum. It’s seldom crowded, and there are so many discoveries here that I think a museum lover would be pleased. Come here, wander, and find things that will really please you. On...More

This museum contains some huge paintings including, on the stairs, four large canvasses showing some of the most famous artists from different periods from classical times onwards. Unfortunately there was no key to check our identifications. The collection is not hugely distinguished.

I'm not clued up on art in anyway but I'm still glad I went. There's a wide range of paintings, mostly portraits, and I found it quite interesting. I'm not a big fan of steps and heights and there's a grandd, granite stair case to...More

The first floor of Art seemed to be more of a family's inheritance and the spatial installation well planned. However, the pieces were not what I expected from a Fine Arts Museum of a major city. The second floor had a few that were significant...More

The art was basically local with a couple of Picasso sculptures and some lesser known impressionists. The house is in the grand style of architecture, wide sweeping staircase and large rooms. Not easy to find but worth the trip.
