  • Located at the top of Le Suqeut with great views, the Musee Des Explorations Du Monde has rotating exhibits. The grounds are quite pretty as well.

  • The Museum has changed names to Musee des Explorations du Monde. The exhibits are extremely well curated and cover regions and artifacts not normally covered in American Museums. I loved the coverage....  more

  • Great view of the city can see the harbour and the Casino and shopping strip, The Cannes sign is up here also. There is a walk way which is step free all the way but can be steep in places. Museum closes fairly early at 5 so get there early.
  • Nice history lesson and we were pleased to see the staff speaking also in English, which seemed a little impossible in France
