Museum And Archaeological Site Cimiez - Review

The Musee et Site Archeologiques de Cimiez is a museum devoted to ancient history at Nice. With the museum site of Terra Amata, it is the most famous archaeological museum in Nice. The most featured objects and mementoes are the milestones of the time of Augustus and Hadrien that lined the Via Julia Augusta, the mask of Silenus and pieces of furniture in wood and bronze, which had been secured from the wreck of the ancient ship Fourmigue.

A section also houses the monumental statue of Antonia Minor from the first century, which was discovered in the Baths frigidarium North in 1957. The currencies of Cornelia Salonina and base statue which is dedicated to the Empress, are also housed in the Museum. A highly preserved section situated within the premises also houses the sarcophagi carved stones which were discovered near the monastery and the Saint Bartholomew. Numerous tombstones are found near the site along with other stelae found in the center of the city of Nice. The museum also features models of the thermal baths, and the Cemenelum- which shows the evolution of the site over the centuries.

Museum And Archaeological Site Cimiez, Nice Reviews

  • Long wait to get in, as it is the same line for visitors purchasing ticket or those having already purchased one at the Matisse museum. One staff member working to validate tickets while the other is watching the line getting bigger. Staff member missed opportunity to show visitors they are welcome, and get up from chair, grab the barcode scanner and invite those with already purchased tickets to get theirs validated.

  • The staff was not very helpful. I arrived looking for the Matisse museum which was closed for the next two weeks. It was a torrential downpour outside and all I wanted to do was wait inside for my ride to pick me up. But standing and waiting inside was a security risk....so I just ended up paying 10€ just to sit down. I thought maybe it could be nice to look at some things while i waited but the museum was so disappointing. No signs in English, And only one small floor with artifacts.

  • Un bèu site arqueologic, a l'interior coma a l'exterior dintre lu òrts

  • Loved the ruins, one of the best places to visit in town. It worth to leave the city centre

  • Also excellent! Educational Art day
