closed for refurbishment, reopening planned in 2021
This museum, the second dedicated to Cocteau in the town of Menton, opened in 2011, thanks to an exceptional donation from Séverin Wunderman (1938-2008). The American had accumulated works by Cocteau and other masters of modern art (Picasso, Modigliani, De Chirico, Miró etc), as well as a collection linked to Sarah Bernhardt. The exhibitions divide the immense collection into themes. Built on the seafront, the building designed by Rudy Riciotti is surrounded by a spectacular façade adorned with white cut-out forms.
