Musee De La Castre - Review

It was originally a square castle-fort, with a dungeon and a watchtower. I know, it sounds like something out of a strategy game, but there you have it. A beautiful Mediterranean garden softens the entrance, makes it inviting. The watchtower can be climbed.

More than a century of donation and acquisitions have gained this museum a surprisingly large and significant collection. The exhibits revolve around four major themes:

Ethnographic and Primitive Art:

  • Himalayan and Buddhist masks, headdresses, votive etc.
  • Arctic (Inuit) hunting/fishing tools, utensils, ivory figurines
  • Native American ceramics and stone sculptures
  • Oceania tribal effigies, canoe parts and weapons

Antique Mediterranean:

  • Sumerian clay tablets, Christian sarcophagi, antique cabinets, items from many Persian countries and Cyprus, and many Egyptian artefacts.

Paintings:

  • Mostly landscape, and mostly by lesser artists from around Provence. Era ranges from 1830 – Post Impressionism.

Also included are a collection of musical instruments from around the world and painting of personalities who contributed to the museum.

Musee De La Castre Information

  • Donate to the museum.
  • Climb the 109 steps of the watchtower for a 360 degree panorama of Cannes.

Musee De La Castre, Cannes Reviews

Google+
  • Providing you can make the walk up many winding hilly paths, you'll find a quaint little museum offering a range of different displays and exhibits. Also offers a stunning view of the city.

  • Fantastic little museum with a low entry fee and the opportunity to climb the Chateau tower for the absolute best view across Cannes. Worth it just for that!

  • Very interesting museum with: large anthropology section, local painters, musical instrunents. In a charming site.

  • The ascent to the former castle, from which not much remains, is already worthwhile for the view of Cannes. I didn't visit the museum itself, but I enjoyed walking up here and relaxing. Besides remains of walls and towers, there is a crenellated wall of the castle in front of the church.

  • Nice place to have a full aerial view of cannes. Students below 26 have discount in ticket price.
