Fodor's Expert Review Musée d'Art Classique de Mougins

Mougins Museum/Gallery

Opened in 2011, this hidden gem "highlights the dialogue between the old and the new" with Roman, Greek, and Egyptian art rubbing shoulders with pieces by Picasso, Matisse, Cézanne, Warhol, and Dalí. Expect to come across a sarcophagus alongside a Cocteau or a Hirst sculpture next to an ancient bust. Spread over four floors, the museum also houses antique jewelry and the world's largest armory collection. This is as hip as classic will ever be. Check their website for special events, like Soirée Beaujolais and late-night openings.
