Musée de Préhistoire Régionale

A fascinating insight into prehistoric people based on discoveries made during excavations by a local naturalist, Bonfils. The building was constructed in 1909 by the architect Adrien Rey. Menton folk arts and traditions are presented on the first floor, while the basement is given over to the history of tourism, including posters from the golden age of winter tourism between 1870 and 1914.
