This museum is located in the Graillon Tower on the tip of the Cap d'Antibes. It boasts panoramic views from its large terrace.
The Graillon Tower was part of an old fort with origins in the 15th century, and occupied during the Thirty Year's War in 1635. Napoleon recognised the fort's strategic importance and restored it in 1794 as a defence post renamed Graillon Battery. He would further strengthen the small fort with artillery weapons in 1860.
Previously a museum dedicated to Napoleon, is was turned in 2014 into a didactic space where you can learn about the underwater worlds. They offer exhibitions, conferences, workshops and visits to natural spaces walking, snorkelling and kayaking, all revolving around maritime ecosystems.
It is surrounded by a beautiful park with Mediterranean trees and bushes, perfect for a stroll.
