  • I visited this museum during a trip to Antibes, intrigued by the statue of two sweethearts of Peynet positioned in front of the entrance of the exhibition. This is a very small exhibition space (two rooms) where you can see designs and works of Peynet and other humourists. In my opinion it is worth it, given the particularity of the Museum and the very low cost of ticket (3 euros for adults; 1 euro and 50 for those over 65 years old; free for children). I was especially impressed with the old advertising of airline Air France, fully illustrated by Peynet. Really very original to spend a half hour different in Antibes.

  • Cute small museum to visit in love (for example), on the theme of the cartoon and the comic strip the end of the 19th century to the present day.

  • For 3 euros you can have a good time. The front rooms are devoted to Peynet and his work (drawings, dolls, trinkets with lovers of Peynet). Aft, there is currently a temporary exhibition on the cartoon during the first world war between other.

  • Cute and really funny illustrations.
  • The museum itself is worth a visit. But the Director Officer is a wound that spoils all the fun of the Museum. This thing has probably never had a real job where he is confronted with the public sees the Museum as his little home or every visitor comes to disturb its tranquillity. In short, great works ruined by the staff. I would recommend the Picasso Museum just two steps away.

  • A nice Museum, small but packed with drawings, prints, photos and various items, all of Peynet. You pass a pleasant hour and only cost 3 euros. Also there is always a second view, dedicated ud another artist, as Kristian, Dubout/Pagnol and Bosc. The staff are friendly and there is a space where you can rest peacefully. I do occasionally go there, because there is always associated with a view by another artist.

  • Awesome! We discover the artist if we didn't know and you learn otherwise. Merrier well by browsing the aisles through this peculiar humor and on several occasions as we is recognizes or we recognize a situation through drawings that makes us reflect on us even. A visit if you are in Antibes!
