I'm not a massive fan of his work, but there was another artist's work displayed on the ground level which I liked. The sub-level has Cocteau's work and a film he made about his work. The ticket does get you into the Old Fort a...More

We were lucky to turn up on the first Sunday of the month and get free entry. Nice exhibition space & cafe. The cafe was packed, and a self service lunch was laid out with cold meats, pâté, quiches, French cheeses and indulgent deserts.

Lovely looking museum, we didn’t know much about this artist to be honest, nice to learn something new. Also an art connection with Picasso. Quite a small and open space. Didn’t take long to have a look round. 5euro each which was pretty good. Staff...More
