Room in Palais Lascaris Nice ProvenceBut inside the guests will see the magnificent frescoes on the walls, elegant interiors and exhibition of the Musical Instrument Museum (it is the second richest French collection).

Most of the presented musical instruments previously belonged to the industrialist and amateur musician Antoine Gautier who in 1904 bequeathed his collection to the city of Nice.

The instruments were for a long time kept in the conservatory and in various museums, and in 2001, were transferred to the Palais Lascari to create here a museum of musical instruments. The museum was opened to visitors in 2011.

Today the museum's collection counts over 500 exhibits some of which are very rare. (Viola by William Turner of 1652, the oldest preserved guitar of 1645 from Avignon, violas d'amour of 17-18 centuries, the baroque guitars, a rare collection of clarinets and eastern music instruments).

In addition, on the 1st floor of the Palais Lascari there is an old pharmacy which worked here from 1738 (it was recreated in great detail virtually the same as it was in those days).

Unfortunately, history has not kept the name of the architect of the palace and the exact date of construction. We only know that the palace was built in the Italian baroque style in the 1st half of the 17th century. Previously (before 1802) the palace was the property of a noble and ancient Vintimille-Lascaris family.

This family dates back its genealogy to the 13th century. (Then Guillaume Pierre I, count of Vintimille married Eudoxie Lascaris, the daughter of Byzantine emperor, Theodore II Doukas Laskaris).

The decayed palace was in 1942 acquired by the city with the aim of creating a regional museum of arts and popular traditions. The palace repairs launched in 1963 lasted for 7 years, and now its interiors make a great impression on visitors.

Going up the marble stairs, they will see numerous statues, arcades and galleries, beautiful frescoes with mythological subjects (mid 17th century). The walls of the palace rooms are also decorated with fine stucco, Flemish tapestries and furniture of 17-18 centuries.
