Located in the heart of Old Mougins in a completely renovated mediaeval home (400m²), the Classical Art Museum of Mougins aims to display Ancient, Neoclassical, Modern and Contemporary art in a single venue to illustrate the tremendous influence of the Ancient world on Classical and Contemporary creation.

On four levels, the Museum strives to illustrate the interaction between the civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Rome and the persistence of the Graeco-Roman heritage to the present.

This innovative museographic concept differs from standard chronological presentations in showing the exchanges between these civilizations from East to West.
