About Musee Matisse, Nice

The Musée Matisse in Nice is a national exhibition hall which was dedicated to the work of the French painter Henri Matisse. It accumulates one of the biggest gatherings in the world from the life of Henry Matisse up to expectations, including his masterful beginnings and his development through the final expectations and creations.

It was shut for some years throughout remodels, and was revived in 1993. With another present day wing and revamped spaces, the display center now widely features its whole lasting gathering, which has pressed on to expand since 1963 through a few successive acquisitions and gifts.

The historical center's prime collections are made up of mixed articles, basically those of Matisse himself, who existed and worked in Nice from 1917 to 1954. Also included are the works of his beneficiaries, and in addition works helped by the State. The display center houses 68 compositions and gouaches, 236 drawings, 218 prints, 95 photographs, 57 models and 14 books showed by Matisse, 187 items that had a place with the painter, and prints, woven artworks, ceramics, stained glass and numerous historical documents.

Musee Matisse Information

  • The display center, which was opened in 1963, is placed in the Villa des Arenes, a seventeenth-century villa in the neighborhood of Cimiez. In 1989, the archaeological display center was moved to the close-by old site of the city, permitting the Musée Matisse to be stretched.

Musee Matisse, Nice Reviews - Write a Review

  • Big rooms with not much in them except reproductions, works by other painters and some early day Matisse which just don't have the magic of his Nice paintings, his interiors with the sea glimpsed between the wooden shutters. I understand that these works have such a huge value that their natural place is in the world's big museums, but the visitor to the city is misled by the available tourist information to expect something more satisfying. As for the "rude" personnel, they must have read the comments because when I went today they stepped over themselves to be not just polite almost embarrassingly friendly (unusual for the French) with little jokes about my pocket knife which had to be left at the security gate and even my name, Lawrence, being the same as that of the lady who sold us the tickets, Laurence! A big empty-ish museum with a few things of interest, most of which can be easily viewed online. I am sorry to be so harsh, now being an adopted Niçois myself, but after I left I was glad that Laurence let me in free because I told her I reside in Nice... 10 euros would have been a rip-off!

  • Nice little museum with some lesser important works of Matisse. The most interesting part of the visit is the history on Matisse's life which is laid out in the route to follow through the different room. €10 entry ticket, which allows access for 24h to all of the museums that belong to the city of Nice. Most of those are not worth €10 on their own, so good to plan a day of doing some of these museums together.

  • Small take of Matisse's life on this beautiful building. Only handful of his work here as most famous works are in other museums. They're extending the place, but it's currently under construction.

  • Disappointing. On top of the outstandingly rude staff at ticket desk, there is little of interest inside. Very little written in English. Audio app you have to use on your own phone didn't even work. Don't bother giving them your money until they've upped their game.

  • Good little museum much more focused on his life rather than his work (mainly smaller, lesser pieces here). Can't go wrong if visiting other museums included in the ticket price too.
