In a well kept garden you will find this pretty and hopefully soon restored millionaires villa turned into local art museum. The house itself is worth a visit and the small but ambitious exhibitions are nice. A good one and a half hour type of...More

Usually something interesting on dIsplay here and the gardens are a delight. Between Menton and Carnoles so not where many tourists walk, bot only 100m from the promenade and worth the detour.

The art wasn't up to much but the building in which it was displayed is a lovely old mansion with beautiful decoration. It is situated in a park area that is worth exploring.

This year the old Grimaldi "summer palace" in Menton had a small but interesting exhibition of their own art collection of paintings and sculptures. At the same time you can also stroll around in the Citrus "agrume garden" sorrounding the Museum.

We wanted to visit the museum in the hope the building had been restored to its former glory. Not so much on the ground floor but the 2nd floor is quite interesting. The best part is the large garden with a citrus grove, flowers, insect...More

Carnoles Palace Art Museum is an art exhibition located in a beautiful old building with a large surrounding garden full of interesting sculptures. While the place seems to be needing some restoration, it is probably the best art museum of the Menton area and well...More

the museum is manageable (my favourite sort - vs. overwhelming) and worth a visit. but for me the main appeal here is the citrus garden, with fun sculptures in between the various trees and plants. especially when you live in a cooler climate, it's always...More
