Antibes' museums

The old town of Antibes is a hit with thousands of visitors each year. Most tourists take themselves to the little beach or take a stroll along the numerous tucked away cobbled streets, but if you ever find yourself in Antibes why not take a visit to the below and immerse yourself in the history of Archaeology?

Musée d’Archéologie
Bastion St-André
Open 10:00-13:00, 14:00-17:00 Tues-Sat (Nov-Jan),
10:00-12:30, 14:00-18:00 Tues-Sun (Sept-June).

Adults €3, concessions half price.

Directions: Head to Old Antibes and follow the Promenade de l’Amiral until you reach the museum.

Squeezed into the ramparts is one of the many fortifications built under Louis XIV. Representing some four thousand years of history, this small museum exhibits some interesting excavations from the area including shipwreck salvages and a bread oven. There is also a well-presented model of Antibes prior to some of the ramparts being torn down in the 19th century to accommodate the city’s growth.
