Musée Masséna

The Masséna Palace & Gardens at Nice

An architectural gem on the Promenade des Anglais, the Musée Masséna stands back from the road amidst beautifully laid out gardens.

Fit for the grandson of a hero

Built at the turn of the 20th century in the Italianate style to the design of Hans-Georg Tersling and the local architect Messian for Victor Masséna, the grandson of the Marshall for whom the nearby place Masséna is named.

The wonderful gardens at the front were laid out by the celebrated landscape gardener Eduoard André.

André was also responsible for the gardens at the Monte Carlo Casino.

A History of Nice

There are in excess of 20 exhibitions with about 15,000 exhibits recounting a chronological history of Nice. It houses collections of furniture and a variety of artworks. In addition, discover an extensive library of photographs and maps on the top floor.

NOTE: Enter the Musée Masséna from the rue de France running parallel with the Promenade des Anglais.
