Housed in a very modern and stylish building. A very well laid-out display of his wide-ranging talents. An eclectic mix with something for everyone. We skipped the ceramics at the fort and realise that that was probably a mistake. The lack of any English signage...More

My wife and I went to visit the museum full of enthusiasm. My wife had been taken to see La Belle et la Bête when a child by her father who was keen on Cocteau. We both had recently watched Orphée. As francophiles we knew...More

This is a very good addition to the art scene in Menton. The design of the building is worthy of note in itself. Outside low rise and quirky , inside light and spacious. As a very modern structure it fits into the Seaside space really...More

Interesting museum which tells a story of the life on Jean Cocteau. He was a very talent man. It is a pity that the museum is quite small.

When we visited most of the works of Jean Cocteau had been given over to an exhibition of the works of Raoul Dufy. This was really great. We visited on one of the Sundays when entrance is free. Make sure that you use this ticket...More

Great museum to see the art of Jean Cocteau and others. Plus see the ties that Jean Cocteau had with movies, like the original Beauty and the Beast.

We enjoyed the beautiful, cheerful Dufy exhibit. It mixes fabric prints, fashion, illustrations, paintings from the versatile Dufy. The basement level had standard Cocteau collection items.
