“Palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

The entrance is free, they will direct you the reception just to make sure you know you have to take picture with no flash.
You will see a lot of old music instrument if you are music fan.
It's nice to stop to see what it looks like to live in a posh house in nice during the old time.

“Beautiful Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

This museum was a bit hard to find as it is in Old Nice and is not well marked however when we found it, we were very glad we made the extra effort. This building was a former royal palace that was donated to the city of Nice and turned into a museum. The interior has beautiful architecture & staircases with a very good selection of artwork including some by Matisse who lived in Nice for a portion of his life. This museum was a very welcome surprise.

“Worth a short visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Billed as a 17th century noblemans apartments, this Baroque palace certainly gives a small glimpse into the privileged world of the rich and famous old French nobility.
There's a few rooms lined with some pretty amazing old furniture and tapestries as well as a collection of jazz instruments and old posters etc from the previous Nice jazz festivals. What they to do with a 17th century palace is not really explained but still interesting for a short time, one good thing about the displays for non French visitors, they have a good explanation in English on what you're looking at.

“Small and beautiful.”

Not to be missed!
The building itself is delightful. There is also a special jazz exhibition in the Palais, as part of the special Matisse Exhibition currently on show in Nice.
