Very interesting history of Biot in 10 sections (main signs in French and English, subsidiary signs in French only), finishing with a display of local artwork. Glasswork it turns out has only been the main activity in Biot for the past 60 years, with pottery and derivatives the main industry prior. 4 euros for adults, free for kids under 10.

Allow an hour to look around and take in the history of the village expressed in ceramic history and design. A fascinating small museum. See if you can find how many ceramic jars were made and used to export produce on horseback in a single year - its a big number!

...with some nice little art (ceramics exhibit). Nothing to write home about, but centrally located and easy.
