10 euro entrance fee, free for students. You could buy a combine ticket and visit all of the museums in Nice. A beautiful roof terrace with a view of Nice.

We visited in October 15, and interesting building housing some bemusing but interesting contemporary art. The roof top views are stunning, and comes recommended if you stay here and love art and architecture.

Very difficult to locate the entrance to this museum (you have to go up to the plaza level above the street before you can enter). Round towers connected by walkways provide interesting spaces for display, but we were not that impressed by the art on...More
