The Renoir museum is placed in the heart of a beautiful estate planted with olive and citrus trees offering a breathtaking view down the Cape of Antibes. This home was the retreat and final address of the painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, who moved to Cagnes in an attempt to improve his arthritis. The museum's collection ; painting, scultpures, artist's studio and furniture constitue the testimony of Renoir's last 12 years of life spent in Cagnes-sur-Mer.

After complete renovation, the museum reopened in July 2013. Twelve rooms in the painter’s house are now open to the public. Rooms dedicated to sculpture have been added, and a lift for disabled visitors has been installed.
