Excellent little museum stuffed with ethnographic relics from around the world, including a Persian permanent exhibition. Outside is almost more delightful, with a panoramic view of Cannes, the Alpes on a good day and the most delightful sea breeze. heaven with a busker too.

Uphill climb to the museum but it is doable. Admission was free if you have a student ID, Staff was friendly and spoke enough english to be helpful. The artifacts contained in this museum are extremely interesting, mostly Ancient Roman artifacts from the 1st Century...More
