Description

Discover the collections of the Mougins Museum of Classical Art and admire artwork from Antiquity to the present day!

Either on a visit at your own pace or on a guided tour, discover the rich and diverse collection of art brilliantly displayed and explained. The collections span the Antique world and this period’s influence on artwork to this day.

At the entrance to the charming village of Mougins, enter the museum located in a beautiful medieval-era domain, and explore the world of classical art. You will be surprised by the juxtaposition between certain pieces of art: The Birth of Venus by Andy Warhol dialogues with a marble statuette from the 1st century A.D; the drawing of Caracalla’s busts by Henri Matisse faces a marble portrait created during the reign of the Emperor. Both of these examples demonstrate the timeless sources of inspiration for artists like Warhol and Matisse, including Picasso, Chagall, Rodin, Dufin and many more.

From the 21st century B.C. to the 21st century A.D, the artwork will guide you throughout this period where coins, mosaics, sculptures, drawings, antiquities and modern art overlap. Amongst the antique art, you will visit an Egyptian crypt and will be able to admire the largest private collection of Greco-Roman weaponry and helmets in the world!

Tactile screens and educational games are available for younger visitors throughout the visit.
