This smallish galley is situated in the old town right by the open air market which is surrounded by many cafés - great for people watching. By the way you can buy a week long galley pass for 20 euro, giving you entry to all...More

There was a general theme in Nice with the museum, generally they were disappointing, there was just mainly lacking in substance. I felt with this museum they could have actually had more going on, it's very small and unless you are going to visit some...More

A nice space if somewhat limited for the photography fan expecting something similar to the spaces found in larger cities. However, the two floors are well-dispayed. The €10 entrance allows entry to the other museums listed within 24hrs. The visitor entering only this museum may...More

This museum is worth a stop if you've purchased the museum pass for all of Nice. If not, don't bother visiting and purchasing a single ticket. It costs 10€ and the 'museum' is only large enough for a single exhibition (no permanent collection). I'm an...More

Comes as part of museum pass - would have overlooked it without it. The photography was stunning and the staff really friendly. English translations not provided on exhibits for those who enjoy them.

We went to this museum because both my husband and I are amateur photographers. The standing exhibition are photos of Nice during the Belle Epoque (late 1800s to early 1900s). The other exhibition, which changes from time to time, is more contemporary. When we visited,...More

The Helmut Newton installation which we were fortunate to see here was outstanding. As a semi-professional photographer it was inspirational. Next door has a further exhibition of very old photos of Nice itself and a presentation of cameras from across the years. NOTE : 1...More
