The neoclassical Italianate architecture of Massena Museum was inspired by the Rothschild villa in Cannes. A very skillful restoration of the historic gardens was conducted in 2006-2007, which restored the original luster of the aristocratic mansion. The villa is surrounded by a courtyard, a French garden, and a great lawn. Wander past remarkable plants, such as the Magnolia grandiflora, Araucaria excelsa, Melaleuca, and Brachychiton populneum.

  • Beautiful museum in the heart of Nice. I took my 3 year old daughter here and they had a LEGO exhibit at the time, which was really neat to see amongst the historical elements of the building. You can get through the whole museum and under an hour, and its central location in Nice makes it easy to stop by after visiting the beach.
  • Surprisingly more interesting than I expected. Much more than the Residential Villa in golden finishing that I thought it was. It's a great trip through history. A storyteller of the City development into a holiday winter destination of North European aristocracy. Includes excellent examples of fashion jewellery, outfits and memorabilia. Highly recommended. The garden is also worth a stroll.
