  • Nice museum and aquarium, friendly staff, they have plenty of bins to leave your bags in if you are coming or going via the ferry.
  • "Vendre de dernier billet", or selling the last tickets at 17:15 according to the museum rules, will mean that you won't be able to attract anyone's attention for 15 minutes and get the tickets. And later at 17:16 they will tell you that they are closed and it's too late to come in :)
