The city of Nice, famous for its passion for art and culture (among other things), offers more than fifteen museums to choose from showcasing the wealth of collections ranging from art, culture, to history and more. Treat yourself to a visit to MAMAC, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, one of the most well known museums located right in the heart of the city. Admire the artistic expression from the various temporary exhibitions that change annually to showcase the progression of art and contemporary interpretation. Once you've toured the MAMAC, then head to the Matisse Museum, located in the middle of the olive grove of the Cimiez Park, where the annual May Festival takes place. Opened in 1963, the museum primarily displays works of art created by Henri Matisse, tracing his artistic beginnings to the evolution of his aesthetic design. Before you head to the famous Promenade des Anglais, make sure you take a little detour to the Marc Chagall Museum, founded in 1973 with the aim of showing his works of art inspired by religion.
