Massena Art & History Museum (Musée Massena) Tours

The Massena Art & History Museum (or Musée Massena) reopened in 2008 after an extensive renovation taking 8 years! In an impressive Italianate neoclassical mansion fronting onto the Promenade des Anglais, it has 23 exhibition rooms and lush gardens. The focus of exhibits is the history of Nice which, considering the artists, writers and musicians who have lived in the area, is not nearly as dull as it sounds. 

The gardens are English-style and provide a welcome place of greenery to relax out of the glamorous bustle and sunshine of Nice. The villa was built between 1898 and 1901 by Andre Masséna who gave it to the people of Nice in 1917 when it became a museum of regional history.
