The museums of Cannes

treasures of knowledge

Journey to the cultures of the world

At the top of the Suquet district, called La Castre, nestles the Museum of World Explorations. Overlooking the city and its region, it is like a bird that takes us around the world. Primitive art from the Himalayas and Tibet, Oceania, pre-Columbian America, Mediterranean antiquities, musical instruments from around the world, orientalist paintings and objects from the 19th century… A fascinating journey!


The faces of the deep

For this museum, it is advisable to be equipped with a mask and a snorkel. Original, isn’t it? On Sainte-Marguerite Island, the artist Jason deCaires Taylor has placed 6 statues of Cannes’ faces in the water, between 3 and 5 metres deep. A formidable cultural and environmental project, this underwater Ecomuseum is a well thought-out curiosity.

Raising oneself through the arts

From a very young age, the children and teenagers of Cannes grow up with culture as a means of learning. Through the 100% Artistic and Cultural Education scheme, projects are multiplying to encourage encounters, knowledge and artistic practices.
