It supposed to have handicap access in the bottom floor. The guard lets you in from a back door. On the way to the door (which by the way does not have a ramp) there are tree roots that completely lifted the pavement. You literally have to carry up ghe wheelchair to pass. The temporary exhibits where great but on the second floor which is not accesible at all with a wheelchair. The two ladies at the counter were very rude. They made a mistake with the charges and wanted to blame me for it. The guard on the other hand was very cordial and very helpful. He even help me lift my dad's wheelchair over the step to be able to enter and exit the museum as well as over the roots on the pavement. It is amazing that such place does not have handicap access. It the tour guides it says it does to the bottom floor but it is not the case. My dad is very light. If he were a little heavier it would have been impossible to enter the museum.
Beautiful museum with Rich art from over 300 years ago and later. But also fits in a lovely venue from the time as well. For any museum lovers in Nice, this is a must and could be enjoyed multiple times.
