Nice Archeology Museum - Cimiez

Nice Archeology Museum - Cimiez

The museum, inaugurated in January 1989, succeeds the first museum of the archaeological site, created in 1960 in the Villa des Arènes, today the Matisse Museum. The collections contain artifacts dating back to the metal ages and antiquity, developing up to the early Middle Ages. The collections testify to the life of "Cemenelum" (an ancient Gallo-Roman city) and of the province of the Maritime Alps, through the numerous objects and official or private documents discovered during archaeological excavations from 1950 to 1969 (and beyond) in the archaeological site purchased by the municipality of Nice. In fact, objects from all over the region and those discovered in the wreck of the Fourmigue C off the coast of Golfe-juan are presented.
