We wanted to visit local 'attractions' since we were staying in Mougins. Well we visited and 'looked' at the Museum mainly because it did not charge entry fee. We probably spent 15 minutes maximum, not too exciting. Maybe if photography is your thing it might...More

Tiny museum- free to enter with many pictures of Picasso through the years- particularly his later years in Mougins. Definitely worth a visit whilst in this beautiful village.

Free entry to this quaint and compact museum. Admire the cube of melded old cameras in the entrance-way, and you will probably recognise some of your early camera models. Set over 3 levels, accessed by a steep spiral staircase, the displays include large sections on...More
