This is an interesting gallery that is a fitting tribute to an artist and auteur. What I was most impressed by was the streaming of la belle et la bete which for the time is surely revolutionary. more »
Beautifully situated on the water in the heart of beloved Menton, this space is whimsical and steeped in a history that is tangible. The art is sublime and the museum is well worth a visit.
Cool building. Great exhibition space upstairs. Cocteau collection downstairs. Obligatory gift shop and cafe.
Amazing art in a wonderful city. Entry is free the first Sunday of every month.
Wonderful modern structure that looks onto the beach, with a temporary art exhibition on the top floor and some really interesting experiments by Jean Cocteau on the bottom floor
Great museum! Great staff! Very friendly and helpful!
