“It is an interesting little museum”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

The museum is interesting and the grounds are nice. It is inexpensive and if you have been to Cannes a lot it makes for a nice change/addition. The setting of Le Suquet is really what makes it.

“Best views in town”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Visited Cannes from a cruise on a Sunday. There just happened to be a festival of flowers going on so many of the back streets in the old town were decorated with interesting and pretty designs. The walk to the castle is of course all uphill but well worth the effort. The views over the town and surrounding area are magnificent and the coutyard of the castle and the museum have ample seating and shade. Within the main courtyard was a local stall making and selling crepes and sandwiches. The museum is well set out and has exhibits from all over former French territories. The views from the tower within the museum are worth the extra 100 or so steps.

“Good museum with great views!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Get out of the hustle and bustle of waterfront Cannes and check out this really good museum. Not only are the exhibits good but the views from the tower are awesome. After you are done check out the church next door. Also the hill side between the museum is full of great shops and unique dining.

“Interesting anthropology museum”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Nicely laid out anthropology museum based on a collection of artifacts from all over the world. A little dissapointed there was not more about the castle itself and Cannes history but a least there was an amazing view :)

“Eclectic art collection and great views.”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Perched high above Cannes, the view from the ancient castle tower is one of the best on offer here. The town and harbour have lot more character from uphere than theydoat street level.The art is worth a look too.
