“Interesting contrast to the glitz of Cannes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Wandered into the museum as I was exploring the Old Town. You'll go up the hill and see the majestic shoreline that made Cannes famous. The museum itself is quite small, with some medieval artifacts on display including caskets of probably a knight or the lord of the castle. You can finish the museum in less than an hour, afterwhich you can soak in the views as the breezy Cote d'Azur blows away the aches and pains of walking up to the castle. But don't fret, it's at an easy walk unlike the path up to the palace in Monaco.

“Nice view, but...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

The view from the citadel tower is really great. However, the museum is forgettable and has very little by way of regional history.
The "employees" are basically teenagers paid to sit in chairs and smirk at the tourists all day.

“Omg! The view ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Dont care about the museum, it's okay, nothing so special about it. Ask for reaching the "tour", you will climb and climb and climb ... And then suddenly you arrive ... You are on the top of a historical tour, where u can enjoy a 360 view of Cannes, cant describe the view .. It's ... Incredible :D I advise u all to go there, it worth the climb, trust me ;)

“The View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Can't rate the actual museum, but come here for the 360 views of Cannes and the enjoyable walk through Le Suquet to get here.

“Great 180 degree views of Cannes - good exercise - worth the walk up the hill!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Breathtaking views of Cannes - situated just above the Old Town - its definitely worth the trouble to get a different perspective of the place. Unfortunately the museum itself was closed when I got there.
