It is a smaller museum, but has a lot packed into it. It had interesting content and signs that clearly explained the different cultural influences in Antibes. The building itself is very interesting to be in, and has a lovely view of the sea from...More

If you love prehistory then you will find this place interesting. There are lots of interesting artefacts as well as the remains of the Roman toilets and bread oven. The only downside to this place is there doesn't seem to be an English guide and...More

It was blowing a gale and we wanted to get indoors. The building is beautiful (including Roman loos!). All the exhibits have signs in French to test my residual 'O' level vocabulary but tours are available in other languages. Not big but interesting and well...More

Admission is only 3EUR and it is a short scenic walk from old-town. Everything was written in French only but lots of items are self-explanatory and not difficult to understand. They also had beautiful Glass Art exhibition area by the exit. Nice little museum.

This little museum is well worth a visit to learn more about the history of Antopolis. Good display of artefacts, amphorae, mosaics. Funereal wall plaques very poignant, really made you think about the people who once lived here. Free tours are available in different languages....More

Once you find it, you will open your eyes to all the rich history of the Antibes area. You realise there is so much to learn about the old village of Antibes. Some of the old buildings have ancient roman parts built in to them,...More

A very modest entry fee and an overall quick guide in English on the history of the museum. Thereafter the information is in French. Sets the scene well, giving the historic background to Antibes with lots of amphorae, coins and anchors - some artefacts going...More
