“More art galleries....”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

My friends and I wandered through Mougins and after visiting Musee d'Art Classique de Mougins (which was good) we started finding small art galleries that are wonderful. You can find a gallery for any "genre" of art you love. My favourite was Galerie Bolore. I bought a lithograph which I love.

Dear Molly,

Thanks for visiting the Musée d'Art Classique de Mougins and taking the time to post a review.
The village is very pretty with it's many art galleries, boutiques and restaurants... one can really make a day out of it when visiting the museum and you're ticket is valid all day so you can even take a break for lunch and come back later!

Best regards

“A fantastic historical collection”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

This is one of the most interesting museums that I have visited. The layout and explanations made it very easy to view this personal collection. The size of the museum was perfect and combined old with new in an interesting way. Staff were extremely helpful.

“excellent”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

It is quite unbelievable that one man can own all these antiquities each one is displayed beautifully and each takes your breath away. The building, an old garage is also wonderful to see as it has been refurbished to hold these treasures.

Dear Chris,
Yes the collection is quite breathtaking! I have the privilege of admiring it everyday and I can tell you that one never gets bored of it!
The building was actually a village house before the renovations to turn it into the museum began.
And even the architecture represents the museum's theme of juxtaposing antiquities and modern art, as we have maintained the original medieval facade but the interior design is very modern.
Please stop by again when you're next in the South of France and many thanks for posting your positive review of the Musée d'Art Classique de Mougins.
Best regards

“An excellent small museum”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

This well-laid-out museum presents in a fascinating way artistic objects from Egyptian, Greek and Roman times and their influence on more recent works of art. With good explanations in both French and English, interactive information on touch screens and an interesting collection of armory - we spent 2 wonderful hours there.

“A cultural and artistic feast.”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

After a warm welcome on arrival we were impressed by the subtle layout of the museum and its sophistication. Finally we had the priviledge of an enlightening discussion with M. le Directeur Mark Merrony whose generosity will not be forgotton.
