King François I, Vauban, Queen Jeanne and many other historical figures have gathered in an ancient village house to recount events that marked the history of Saint-Paul de Vence. The wax dummies in the museum were manufactured by the Musée Grévin in Paris and are dressed in period costume.

A fun and informative museum, one of its kind on the French Riviera.
