First the King’s governor lived there and from 1792, it became the city hall. The building was then transformed into barracks in 1820, marking the taking possession of the premises by military engineers until 1924.
Professor of French, Greek and Latin at the Lycee Carnot in Cannes, Romuald Dor de la Souchère began in 1923 archaeological searches in Antibes. On March 29, 1924, Dor de la Souchère created the society of Friends of the Museum of Antibes. Their goal was to establish a historical and archaeological museum and to work on publicizing the history of the region. In 1925, the Grimaldi castle was bought by the city of Antibes and Romuald Dor de la Souchère became its first curator. In September 1945, Pablo Picasso visited the Grimaldi museum for the first time and in 1946, Romuald Dor de la Souchère asked him to use part of the castle as a workshop.
