Mini Museum

If you are expecting acres of displays and exciting artifacts like dinosaur skeletons then you are going to be disappointed in this very small and somewhat dated natural history museum. However, the quiet and unassuming displays on local flora and fauna might be just the thing on a rainy day, or to take a breather from exploration of the city.

The museum might be a little musty, but this is one of the oldest museums in Nice, having been inaugurated in 1846, so is worth a quick look if only for that reason. And although a little vintage in its vibe, the experience of stepping into this museum is like stepping back in time, too.
