    We cannot be at Chin and not to visit this museum... a little empty! Original architecture, a part of the ground floor with view of the sea. At the collection level, there is still a little on our end for the permanent dedicated to Cocteau. When at the temporary on Dufy, expected perhaps a little too much and also disappointment. Some major works, if it isn't the collaboration of Dufy and the couturier Poiret who is well treated.

    Reasonable to come in at both museums. Very cool and well inside. Great works of art and, especially, in the basement of interesssant compared to that which was made into a film

    Very interesting exhibition of Dufy upstairs and Cocteau downstairs. Definitely worth going to see.

    The ticket price includes a visit to the Bastion museum which has a collection of Cocteau's "The Fisherman and the Girl", as well to the Palais de l'Europe which has more modern art displayed. The staff is friendly and professional, and also gave a summary of Jean Cocteau's life to us as almost everything in the museum is in French. The museum has an upper and lower floor with paintings and various exhibitions of Cocteau's work. The most famous exhibit is Andy Warhol's tribute art work to Jean Cocteau. I was expecting a bit more from the visit, as there were not much information for non-french speakers, but it is worth a visit.
