This is a fascinating museum where you can easily lose a few hours browsing the exquisite exhibits. Entrance is free, but special events, such as the tea ceremony (highly recommended) carry a small charge.

This museum is set in a beautiful stylish new building right next to the Phoenix Park, so is best done as a combined visit. You can easily take the bus along the Promenade des Anglais or pick up one of the 'blue bikes' and cycle...More

Compact and interesting museum at the entrance to Parc Phoenix next to Place d'Arenas just over the road from the Airport. For me not worth a trip on its own but if you combine it with a stroll around Parc Phoenix (a poor man's Eden...More

A fine collection of Asian cultural artefacts, but unfortunately only a really tiny scrap of Asia`s old and rich culture. Definitely worth a visit if you are visiting the Phoenix Park in Nice.

This was my favourite place in Nice; very unexpectedly. Modern marble building "floating" on a lake, representing a cygnet (young swan). Looks odd from the outside but feels great from the inside, perfect for art. Well lit, with good descriptions in French and English. Free...More

Amazing museum about different eras and areas of Asia. Special exhibition on Samurais (until 2018 January) was so impressive. Only bad thing is that the texts are only in french. There are audioguides for 2€, but dont know what languages.

Right next to the Parc Phoenix, this is well worth a visit in its own right (though I suspect it doesn't get many visitors who haven't just been around Phoenix with their kids!) We were the only visitors there when we went, but there are...More

We wanted to visit the Parc Pheonix. This little museum is right beside the park and is free. It's a little gem. A bit of a hike to get to, as it is near the airport, and there is construction everywhere. The collection is small...More

To be honest, I was hesitant to visit the museum since I am not knowledgeable about the far east asian history and wasn't sure I would like it. I am glad I entered. The museum has a free entrance, unless you would like an audio...More

It's a small museum, but free. The selection is limited but of a good quality. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.
