Perched above Cannes’ Old Town within the medieval Château de la Castre, this museum focuses primarily on ethnographic finds from around the world. Spears from the South Seas and Tibetan masks are interspersed with Sumerian cuneiform tablets and 19th-century paintings of the Riviera. There's also a collection of international instruments on display in the museum's Sainte-Anne Chapel. Visitors, however, will be most impressed by the astounding views from the museum’s viewing tower—accessed via 109 steep steps—which offers glorious views over Cannes, the Mediterranean coastline, and the Lerins Islands beyond. The shady gardens, just outside the museum’s entrance, are a welcome respite for tired sightseers.
