  • in quick visit because with a small child, we were thrilled to walk in this airy place where we see the sea... the works of J.C exposed new museological principles... very clearly presented, chairs with music and recording of the voice of Cocteau great and appreciated regardless of age ;) the polymorphic artist original and powerfully poetic insights

  • 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
