Naval and Napoleons Museum
On a point on Cap d'Antibes, the Grillon Tower overhangs the remains of an ancient battery. As the story goes, André Sella, manager of the Grand Hotel on Cap d'Antibes, had a large collection of documents and objects from the time of Napoleon's return from Elba. In 1952, the Navy granted him permission to use the tower to house his growing collection. Today the Musée Naval et Napoléonien displays paintings, sculpture and objects from that era. There is a fine bust of Bonaparte, sculpted by Canova in 1810, a statue of Napoleon on horseback by Renault, collection of sabers, swords, guns and pistols, figurines of soldiers and officers of the Grand Army in uniform – you got the idea. A wall painting shows disembarking Napoléon's at Golfe-Juan on March 1, 1815.
Panoramic view of Cap d'Antibes, the Lérins islands, and the Alpes de Haute Provence mountain chain from the large terrace worth visit to the museum.
After a tour of the Museum, the neighboring Ellen Roc Park is well-worth visiting.
Admission €3 adults; €1.50 students. If you stay in Juan-les-Pins a week and going to visit several other museums than I would suggest to invest €10 buying Combined ticket, valid 7 consecutive days for entry to Picasso, Archaeology, Peynet, Napoleon Museum, and Fort Carré.
