The Musee d'Art Classique de Mougins (MACM) is a private museum which houses the collection of its founder, Christian Levett, a British investment manager with a passion for history and the arts. In 2008 he decided to found a museum, to enable him to share the collection with others. The MACM enjoys the rich historical background of the Cote d'Azur, and is situated in the historic region of the Mediterranean at the edge of ancient Greek civilisation and the heart of the Roman Empire. It is close to the Graeco-Roman settlements of Nice (Nikaia), Cimiez (Cemenelum) and Antibes (Antipolis). Mougins also reconnects with its ancient past through the modern art produced by its former residents including Francis Picabia, Jean Cocteau, and Man Ray, as well as Pablo Picasso

The Musée d'Art Classique de Mougins (MACM) enjoys the rich historical background of the Côte d’Azur, and is situated in the historic region of the Mediterranean at the edge of ancient Greek civilisation and the heart of the Roman Empire.
The subterranean gallery - known as ‘The Crypt’ because of its tomb-like characteristics - houses the Egyptian collection and has a special association with the Afterlife. Artefacts include a splendid range of tomb reliefs, funerary masks and panels, smaller gods and goddesses in bronze and wood, and culminate in two spectacular painted wood coffins.
The ‘People and Personalities’ gallery displays some of the greatest historical personalities of Ancient Greece and Rome. A series of exquisite marble heads, busts, and statues - several over life-sized - display Roman emperors, including Augustus, Tiberius, Claudius, Nero, Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius, Domitia; and famous Greeks such as Aeschylus, Menander, Socrates, and Alexander the Great, the ancient military leader par excellence. These works are shown alongside drawings, paintings, and sculptures by Paul Cézanne, Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Henri Matisse, Henry Moore, Giovanni Panini, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, Marc Quinn, Egon Schiele, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, and Alessandro Turchi.
This floor has two sections mixing modern and ancient art, the ‘Gods and Goddesses’ and ‘Social Customs’ gallery. Greek gods and their Roman counterparts — Aphrodite (Venus), Artemis (Diana), Athena (Minerva), Apollo, Hermes (Mercury), Hercules (Heracles), Odysseus, Zeus (Jupiter) - are displayed in the form of fine bronze statuettes, marble heads, busts, and statues. These are complemented by the more recent excellence of Sir Peter Paul Rubens, Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Edgar Degas, Keith Haring, Yves Klein, André Masson, Amedeo Modigliani, and Auguste Rodin.
Housed on the second floor, the Armoury contains the world’s largest private collection of Graeco-Roman arms and armour. This comprises Chalcidian, Corinthian, Illyrian and Phrygian helmets, body armour, a unique Greek lion shield, and Roman and Migration Period helmets. Soldiers lived, fought, and died in this equipment, and some of it bears the scars of battle perhaps from some of the greatest military campaigns in history. In the same space is a range of military-themed art by Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Man Ray and Alessandro Turch.
