  • This is the best museum in the entire south of France! Did not know much about this artist and just absolutely fell in love with him. The people that direct and manage the museum are absolutely wonder...  more »
  • The Museum is fascinating because it introduced me to Jean COCTEAU and his Belgian friend. I learned that he had done many things in his life and that, unlike my thought of before he drew very well and that these paintings were very studied. I loved these potteries. The Museum consists of two buildings, the Octopus and the bastion.

  • A huge museum dedicated to cocteau... but which presents curious non-certified works. Not given admission more... but hey... when the weather is bad and we know not what to do... why not...

  • 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.
  • Love the arts! It's definitely a must see.
  • Very nice but the modern framework should not have all the expos do not forget to visit the small museum jean cocteau location has 2
