The Massena Palace Museum of Art and History, often referred to as the Massena Museum or the Massena Palace is a municipal museum in Nice. The museum is located in a 19th century luxury villa that is also one of the last of that century. This villa was built by Andre Masséna between 1898 and 1901. The Massena Museum came into existence in 1921 and is home to more than 15,000 exhibits, displayed in over 20 exhibition rooms. It is a fantastic place to visit for those interested in learning about the history of Nice. The museum is also known for its absolutely beautiful architecture.
