  • This Museum is an old beautiful palace along an alley in the old town. Many interesting musical instruments to view as well as beautiful environments. Beautiful furniture and textiles that are well preserved.

  • This old palace has been well restored and is full of period furniture and paintings as well as housing a superb collection of musical instruments. It is worth the trouble to find it in the old city.  more »

  • Some fascinating old musical instruments on the top floor. Sadly the level of explanation was not up to the standards of other museums in Nice and the opportunities to add good audio experience not explored. The temporary exhibitions on other floors could also have been better curated.
  • It was an interesting place. We got in for free because we were students with ID, so I can't speak to if it's worth the price. There were entertaining things to see related to music.
