Best visited with a museum pass or free as a student. This is a smallish museum, but the artworks themselves are top notch. From 19th century stuff to impressionism and expressionism, the emphasis here is on quality, not quantity. Charming sculptures on the lower floor,...More

There are a couple of stand-out paintings, but the overall collection is pretty uninspiring. However, the building is very lovely. The 10 euro entry fee gives you access to all of Nice's galleries on that day.

Apart from a few works of Rodin, and a few decent painings, it was a stangely scarce collection. Hardy worth €10 in admittance.

Not the biggest most well know collection in the whole world but really take some time to walk around the place a look at the pieces because some were absolutely stunning. Well worth a look.

We went to the Musee des Beaux Arts one morning as it was close to the apartment we had rented. The museum has some fine works for art by Jules Cheret, and Gustav Mossa, among others. I was not familiar with these artists, and was...More

Not much happening here. The collection is small and not that important. Maybe they do a better job with visiting exhibitions. Otherwise, you can skip this museum. The most stunning thing about this museum is the outside. It looks like a great villa.

This museum has a fine collection of art and decoration in a beautiful building. The setting is peaceful and not too crowded.
