Climbing all the stairs for the museum might very well be a waste of time. Entrance for adults (no discount) is 6 euro, which is a bit expensive for what you get. The museum is strange collection with no visible theme of different items and...More

It's in the old castle, so of course it's on a hilltop. The climb might be unpleasant on a hot day, but the view along the Croisette alone is worth it. The collection is small, but among the most eclectic I've ever seen, ranging from...More

Nice collection of interesting stuff. The best part of the place was it's tower. You've got to go all the way up. The beautiful view of the entire town and Bay Area await you!

We walked up to the musee during our visit to Cannes. It is a tough walk to get to the top, lots and lots of steps! However when you make it to the Castre you are treated to superb views of Cannes and its surrounding...More

Interesting ethnological museum of objects brought back by explorers, but nothing about Cannes itself. Nice view from the tower, though. Worth the admission fee.
