The headphones were a disaster ... not enough written information ... the white piano room was amazing and we enjoyed the final short film. But overall it could and should have been so much better, far too 'quirky' to be of great interest I fear.

I love Satie's music so was looking forward to this. I certainly admired the ambition to mirror the personality of Erik Satie. The technology with the audio switching on and off as you entered different rooms was impressive. But apart from the room with the...More

Very quirky museum. In fact I think having been round the museum I was left feeling that Satie was a pretty quirky person. Enjoyable though. There were lots of children there but I’m not sure what they would have got out of it.

I must admit that I did not have a broad knowledge of Satie's music and assumed that the museum would expand my knowledge and understanding of the artist. Whilst the museum was quirky, fun and amusing, it was also not that informative. The GPS earphones...More

Even if you have never heard of Eric Satie or his music this museum will enchant you with the clever interpretations of the composer and the sounds of his music. You can't help smiling as you go round. In old buildings that have been brilliantly...More

I was passing by and my 7 year old son urgently needed to use the toilet. The lady at the reception gladly let us use the toilet. Thank you!
