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 AD.

Musee de la Castre is a history and art museum in Cannes. It has various and changing expositions from European paintings to Eastern and African art and in this sense it is not unique. What I found more interesting was a tower in the museum's inner yard (steep climb!) which offered an amazing 360 degree view of Cannes. So even... More

Nice little museum for 6 Euro. Not busy so you can take your time and enjoy the paintings and a variety of other small exhibits, including an Egyptian, Persian and South Pacific collection. All-in-all, quite an interesting variety. Many of the exhibits have information translated into several languages, including English. If you plan to visit, go on a sunny day... More

Leave your car at the Pantiero parking and take the footpath that takes you from the seafront up to a medieval castle, its chapel and square tower. What used to be the fortified convent of a french monastical order is now a museum housing the collections of baron Lycklama, 19 century dutch nobleman, collector-extraordinaire and honoray citizen of Cannes.

The Museum is ok but the location and the views you get of Cannes from the watch tower is worth the visit. A must see for tourists .

I liked that the museum was free on the first Sunday of the month during the winter months. The staff was very friendly and the grounds were very clean and well kept.

This has a very mixed, eclectic collection - musical instruments, sea treasures and an art gallery. Marvellous site with garden around it and good views.
