Little known to the general public than the famous museums of the Côte d’ Azur (Matisse, Chagall or Picasso), the Mougins Museum of Classical Art (MACM) also deserves your attention.
Located at the heart of the old village of Mougins, near Cannes, the MACM will delight lovers of Ancient Art. Sculptures, vases, jewelry, coins… these collections will see you travel from Egypt to Ancient Greece, not to mention the Roman era.
The main asset of this museum is the collection of ancient weapons and armour (the largest private collection in the world! ), which will give an insight you into a soldier’s daily life, including that of Alexander the Great.
The influence of Graeco-Italian Art has been passed on throught the centuries, so you will also find works by contemporary artists: Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Warhol and Rodin, all inspired by the Age of Antiquity.
Children will follow an interactive presentation on touch screens throughout the visit. The museum also offers a special rate for the whole family.
