This museum is nested in the small village of Mougins. Take an hour to visit their small and diverse collection before going for a walk in the adorable streets of Mougins.

We really loved this interesting museum which features ancient artifacts with modern art that was inspired by them. Multiple floors featuring Egyptian, Medieval, and Asian items.

It's so vast and well organised and thus compact and accessible, just a must-see not only for Mougins but for all Cote d'Azur also. Amazing to know the museum is a product of love of a generous person to the south of France, thanks a...More
