  • We went to see an exhibition of the works of Cocteau, and we had an exhibition of Raoul Dufy instead. This one was very interesting.

  • We were at this summer's exhibition of French painter Raul Duffy that runs through October 9. They absolutely stunning exhibition that showed up most as this gorgeous stretch of artist made during his life! You will also see a very good solid exhibition with the artist Jean Cocteau's works. The Museum is very nice and orderly and have a nice cafeteria.

  • Beautiful museum at a gorgeous location! Great Cocteau collection plus usually another related show.
  • 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.
  • Love the arts! It's definitely a must see.
  • Very good modern
