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. The more recent history and traditions of Menton are explored through the reconstruction of interiors such as a kitchen and bedroom, as well as a display of traditional tools used in lemon and olive cultivation and fishing.
