We made this our third visit of the day. It is not that easy to find in the middle of the old town. A bit dark and dingy inside but it does have a most interesting collection of musical instruments. Worth visiting if you can...More

There was a general theme in Nice with the museum, generally they were disappointing, there was just mainly lacking in substance. This museum is really for music lovers and I'd have to say, on the whole, I just didn't get it. So make sure you...More

Excellent museum - visitor friendly, especially if you are English speaking. We visited the top 10 attractions in NIce and this was the only museum that had sufficient English translations to make a visit really enjoyable.

This small museum is centrally located in the Old city and provides a nice cultural escape from the busy streets. You can get a combined city museum ticket for €10 for 24 hours or €20 for 7 days and this is included on the ticket....More

In addition to the usual elaborate interiors of a Palace there are many, many interesting musical instruments on display. The staff was extremely helpful and took great pride in sharing information with us.

Nice site but requires urgently a renovation. No airco, looks dirty, not maintained. Pity because it is an interesting museum.

This came as a freebie with our Contemporary Art Museum ticket. It was worth the stop! Second largest collection of musical instruments in France, impressive ceiling art, and a jump back in time with portraits and furniture.

Found this by accident wandering in the old town. If you are interested in music and history it is a must see. There are also some lovely furnishing and the building it unique in itself.

This is an interesting museum built around a stair well. As you ascend, at each level there are beautifully furnished and decorated rooms with lots of art and old things. Climbing the stairs is like going back in time to an era of fine craftsmanship...More

We bought a 1 day museum pass for 10€ each which included this museum. It is down the narrow street of rue Droite and the exterior belies the lovely interior. A member of staff was able to explain about the wall tapestries and the "Italian"...More
