The "unique" collection inside the museum, which some might well call a bit "odd", is largely the collection of a Dutch nobleman assembled before 1850. That collection ranges from a fascinating and diverse group of approx 400 primitive musical instruments (magnificently displayed in a barrel-vaulted 12th Century Romanesque chapel) to tribal art (Oceania, pre-Columbian, Arctic and Himalayan) beautifully displayed. All of the displays and information are very well done. More pertinent to the area are Mediterranean antiquities and landscapes, seascapes and other impressionist art.
The buildings are reputed to reflect 11th Century origins with restorations/additions to date. The 360 degree view of Cannes from the tower (interior steps in good shape) is glorious.
