museums:

The Picasso Museum

The Museum of Archeology (with the Pebble of Terpon)

The naval and Napoleonic museum. The old battery of the Graillon which offers a splendid view over the bay of Juan-les-Pins and the Lérins Islands, had been transformed in the fifties into a museum where two replicas of a Louis XV bronze gun XIV welcomed the visitor. Inside, there were display cases on the construction of tall ships, models of ships, Napoleonic souvenirs from the rich collections of Mr. Sella (former director of the Hotel du Cap passionate about the First Empire) and Madame Pardee (bust of the Emperor by Canova, figurines of soldiers and officers of the Grand Army, autographs of Bonaparte, marshal Ney’s sword, pistols of the Emperor …). But the Naval and Napoleonic Museum has not been maintained by the city of Antibes and has not been the subject of an animation. Naval works and objects from the Sella collection have been taken over by the Toulon Navy Museum. The pieces from the Pardee collection were crated and transferred to the Fondation Napoléon in agreement with the rightful owners Pardee, thanks to the action of the Nice Delegation of the Association of Napoleonic Remembrance (President Olivier Ghebali). In June 2012, the Musée Napoléonien was abolished in favor of a Sea and Coastal Area that seeks its vocation … Association of Napoleonic Remembrance (President Olivier Ghebali).
