A museum close to your holiday residence

Enter a universe of trophies, medals, history and sports of all kinds. Through collections
as enriching as each other. The museum is divided into three types of exhibitions.
A permanent, where you can discover several works such as bikes of famous French riders of the Tour de France, sculptures, paintings or even posters.
Another temporary one that compiles all forms of art.
The creations are made by various recent artists who want to share their works around the sport.
The last exhibition is virtual. Photos and short films will be at the rendezvous to make you relive the victories of the greatest champions of France, all in pictures!

The sport history, the project of a life

These collections are, in reality, the result of a project of the famous mountaineer Maurice Herzog which dates from 1963.He was at the time Secretary General of the Minister of Youth and Sports. It took 51 years for his project to take shape, two years after his death.

The museum is a few minutes from your holiday residence by public transport, or 30 minutes by bike along the Promenade des Anglais. Ideal location for a sporty visit and enjoy your holidays in the heart of the Mediterranean! You can also visit the Allianz Riviera near the museum, which is one of the most beautiful stadiums in France.
