Jean Cocteau Museum, France

Located at the foot of the old town of Menton, facing the covered market and near the sea front, the Jean Cocteau Museum Collection Severin Wunderman opened in November 2011. Inspired by the many facets of the genius Cocteau, architect Rudy Var Ricciotti chose to imagine a museum evoking a shell abandoned by the sea.
The poet's work in all its facets is presented over 2700 m², from the 1910s to the 1950s and offers visitors the exhibition of collections and temporary exhibition spaces, an educational workshop, a graphic arts firm, a space for documentary resources and a bookstore.
