If you find yourself in Mougins with an hour or two to spare, then you need to look no further than this museum. An extraordinary collection of classical art with each floor covering a different theme including a fabulous collection of Roman armor as well as an extraordiary sarcophagus! The museum has been very well laid out and the interactive screens allow the children to participate and learn about ancient Greece, the Romans and enjoy all the ancient artifacts!

Entering the museum one can find classical Greek, roman and egyptian art. This is one of the most complete and comprehensive collections one can find. Interactive tools are excellent and descriptions are in French and English. I would highly recommend.

Whether you are interested in the art and artifacts of antiquity, the Renaissance, or the modern and contemporary world (or just have a couple of hours to spare!) you will get something out of this museum experience. The hang is inventive and engaging for adults and children alike, and the juxtaposition of ancient and modern encourages you to look at both in a new light. Thoroughly recommendable!

Spent very happy few hours in this fascinating Museum. The exhibits are laid out in a comprehensive and interesting way that makes what might otherwise be a dry subject totally engrossing.
Love the injection of modern and contemporary work among the ancient.

A fantastic juxtaposition of ancient and modern. Thoughtfully presented with excellent explanations. The interactive explanatory notes kept the kids attention also. One of the best small museums I have visited anywhere.
