A very nice location and a pretty courtyard, but a poor collection of a real fish mash of objects. Some very mediocre paintings, a bit of ethnology, and all explanations in French only.

Stopped here for 10-15 minutes while on the land train tour. Didn't have time to explore the buildings but you get an excellent view of Cannes and the surrounding areas

Situations at the top of le Souquet. Rigorous woke up through the Old Town very picturesque. Museum hosts different exhibitions currently showing maritime communities in Tahiti and Polynesia generally. From historical perspective very interesting great views of Cannes.

This is a very nice but still nearby getaway from the public crowds during the festival (which was when I was in Cannes). Definitely worth exploring further since it's so beautiful. One of the most beautiful views over Cannes!

This museum has a fantastic collection of pieces from all over the world. You can normally climb the tower but at the moment they are doing renovations so the tower was closed and only four rooms were open. Still worth a visit.

My entire stay in Cannes was overshadowed by rain. I had to make the walk up to this museum in a downpour, but I can honestly say that it was worth it. A museum full of intriguing and beautiful pieces from across the ages, some...More

The museum has a unique collection of artefacts from around the world which are well worth the €6 entry fee. In the courtyard you will find the tower and with a small climb up 109 stairs (21m) you will find breathtaking views on Cannes. Well...More

This museum is perched up on the old town, and it's a nice walk and an opportunity explore a rather diverse collection of historical treasures from around the world. The big draw for us was the view at the top of the tower, which is...More
