Although pricey to pay for entry for just this museum it can be paired with a ticket to the Modern Art Museum. It is a former palace with some original furnishings and on the upper floors an off-beat collection of unusual musical instruments. Who know...More

Found this while wandering through the old town in Nice. It is an amazing step back in time. The building is beautifully restored and you can wander through, not very busy when we visited so able to get time to explore without crowds
