On the night between 29 and 30 October 2018, a severe storm hit the Menton region. The museum, which is around 50 metres away from the shore, was hit by waves and its basement was flooded.

As a result of the storm, management decided to shut down the museum until further notice in order to allow for restoration of the damaged works
