The MIP in Grasse is quite large but it is interisting to complete your tour with a visit (free - about 30 minutes ) of (very close) : - Usine historique Fragonard, 20 bd Fragonard - a tiny museum of Costume Provençal, 2 rue Jean Ossola, - a small museum of paintings (Collection jean-Honoré Fragonard), 14 rue jean Ossola. Fragonard Boutiques are excellent for Souvenirs shopping.”
