  • It's a beautiful space, clean and bright but unfortunately the show has packed us. Not quite monotonous, interactive

  • I enjoyed the clear presentations of the works of the master. I knew the small Museum of the Fort; This new allows to expand the exhibitions, thus giving a better idea of the genius of Cocteau.

  • 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
