A very well presented museum of Cocteau and others including Picasso and Matisse. Well laid out in a lovely modern building. Our daughter really enjoyed the museum even though she previously detested Picasso.

Absolutely fabulous modern new museum displaying the works of Jean Cocteau juxtaposed with other favourite surrealists such as my all time favourite Picasso. So worth a visit and such lovely friendly staff. Keep an ear out for the Caroline the excellent, helpful and knowledgeable Australian guide in the gallery.

As imposing a structure as the building appears, its content is world-class! Cocteau's art is amply represented and exhibited, and so is that of his friends, Picasso and, to a lesser extent, Matisse. DO NOT MISS IT

This museum is located right in the sea wall of Menton, by the picturesque harbour.
It is cool with subtle lighting.
The displays are well laid out.
Parking is convenient.
I've loved Jean Cocteau since I was a child. I very much enjoyed my visit.
