  • Very beautiful Nice palace with beautiful paintings on the ceilings, typical stairwell. Very nice collection of musical instruments.

  • A museum in the heart of the old city that will amaze you through the Arctic entrance. An extensive collection of old musical instruments, myself more interested in the magnificent building with its old ceiling paintings. The museum belongs to the destinations where you can visit the museum card (10 €/day or 20 €/week), I recommend!

  • Some fascinating old musical instruments on the top floor. Sadly the level of explanation was not up to the standards of other museums in Nice and the opportunities to add good audio experience not explored. The temporary exhibitions on other floors could also have been better curated.
  • It was an interesting place. We got in for free because we were students with ID, so I can't speak to if it's worth the price. There were entertaining things to see related to music.
