Menton museums are open everyday except Tuesdays and Bank Holidays.
Jean Cocteau created his very own museum in the "Bastion" ( a fort built in the XVII century)
Jean Cocteau, painter and poet, became involved in the restoration and decoration of the Bastion, a small fort of the XVII century, in order to convert it into an exhibition place for his work.
Drawings, tapestries, watercolours, pastels, ceramics,
faiences and mosaics made of pebbles are a memorial of the multifaceted talents of this artist who loved Menton.
Open all year round from 10.00am to 12.00pm and from 2.00pm to 6.00pm.
Closed on Tuesday and holidays.
