Some of the ratings say, it is worn-off, I would say, that this museum has a lovely charm - it is not brand new and modern, but shows a certain Grandezza of past times and beautiful architecture - and has, as I found, very nice pictures just to look around. Yes, it is not as big as the Tate, the... More

If you bought the local museum card you might as well pop in. The symbolist Gustav Adolf Mossa is more fun than good, but better than the rest.

On our way to the airport we decided to pay this museum a visit, but it was a big mistake. There were no visitors around 12:00. We got rejected in the door because we had a backpack and a little handbag with us and there were no way to storage it or at list put it behind the desk. I... More

A short walk -- easiest from the bus stop on Rue de France, leading over a large square and then uphill through the back garden gates to this distinguished mansion, about 250 meters. Otherwise via Avenue des Baumettes, approx. 400 meters. Of all the museums in in Nice, one could say that the Curator of the Musée des Beaux Arts... More

I live less than a block away, and usually just walk the dog in the charming park, but the beautiful, decaying building houses some great art. Many unexpected works, including some household names, housed in a stunning building that just cries out to be restored.

This museum is a bit off the beaten track, and is not top rank, but contains some curiosities. It was created by Jules Cheret, whose chocolate-box effusions greet one on arrival, but there are some good things further in: a Bronzino crucifixion, two medieval Madonnas, some Picasso ceramics, a roomful of Dufy - one needs to hunt around. And if... More

Rather off the beaten track and quite disappointing for habitués of good fine arts museums. Almost the only piece of art worthy of note is a copy of Rodin's The Kiss, which will be know to anyone who has been to London's National Gallery. The building itself is handsome, but in need of renovation - especially at ceiling level.

Europe is filled with museums containing great masterpieces. This one is not a mega museum, but a very nice one worth visiting. If you have a museum pass which includes this one, well worthwhile.

Take 38 bus there and back to get a good tour of urban Nice. The museum is well laid out and enjoyable, with excellent gardens. A fine collection of Jules Cheret paintings

if you want somewhere to stop in at the end of the promenade, and you bought the combined ticket, take a peek, but it's not worth a special trip on it's own.
