“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Interesting to view the room, but would not make a trip to Menton just to view this. Thought it would be a great place to choose to be married!

“Very striking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

Our hotel was 2 minutes away - how could we not visit? The Salle des Mariages was by far the most original Registry Office I've seen. The 2 Euro admission fee is a small price to pay for such a distinctive work of art. The Jean Cocteau decorated walls are impressive. The commentary which we were provided with was in French - quite difficult to follow. I understand that commentaries in other languages may be available - if you visit, ask for an English version.

Jean Cocteau murals - what a place for a wedding, we didn't dislike anything - this room is wonderful.

“This is Cocteau at his best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

He was given free rein to decorate this room. I loved the suspicious look of the mother-in-law. Was she thinking "Is any one good enough for my daughter?"
The town hall staff will put on a guide in your chosen language.
A must to visit.

“Prompted a heated debate!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2013

My partner and I visited last week and have good enough French to understand the digital commentary on the artwork - if not you may need some additional information. However, the debate we had was about the suitability for wedding ceremonies of Cocteau's chosen subject matter on one of the walls - a myth involving a massacre! Hard on the heels of the two parts of the Cocteau museum it was wonderful to see something so fresh but which was done fairly late in his life.
