Fodor's Expert Review Musée de la Photographie

Mougins Free

Near Porte Sarrazine, the Musée de la Photographie permanently displays André Villers's portraits of his good friends—Picasso, who gave the French photographer his first camera in 1953, and Dalí, among them. Recommended as one of the world's top 10 free photography museums and attracting 25,000 visitors a year, here the iconic photographer's avant-garde images spread over three floors in a small village house. Temporary exhibits across the year pull in some big names and there's a terrific collection of old cameras.
