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.

The highlight of the museum is the tower. I would definitely recommend to climb the Tower to go at the top and you will be floored with stunning views of Cannes. This place is free to visit for students. Highly Recommended.

The museum shows historical artifacts for a number of civilizations. Also, you can go to the top and enjoy panoramic views of Cannes.

This museum has artifacts that span 5000 years! It's a great collection and wonderful to be able to see so many different things in this very affordable museum. Each room had information in English for those that don't read French.
