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.
