I had been aware of this museum for a while but hadn't got round to visiting until recently. Just a very short walk off the Main Street in Villeneuve Loubet the attractive building houses some fascinating exhibits, not least the handwritten menus from the man himself. There is also an amazing display of sugar work from those at the top... 更多
We went on the first Sunday of the month, when it's FREE to everyone (although Madame on the door had to be reminded of this). Opening hours are 14.00-18.00. We were the only people there.

Lovely little museum, fascinating exhibition and lots of information. The charming lady in charge explained where to find everything and left us to enjoy at our own pace. Highly recommended!
