Fodor's Expert Review Musée des Explorations du Monde

Cannes History Museum

The hilltop Musée de la Castre has now become the Musée des Explorations du Monde, but still features a wonderful collection of weaponry, artifacts, art, and antiques within the 11th-century château. There are temporary exhibitions here as well, and over the next five years, the site will be modernized for the first time in its 40 year history. The imposing four-sided Tour du Suquet (Suquet Tower) and its 109 steps were built in 1385 as a lookout against Saracen-led invasions.
